The modern fitted kitchen faces the front of the property and opens to the dining room, which has a range of bespoke fitted storage units. Folding doors open to the conservatory, which is an excellent sun trap. French doors open to the garden.

The principle bedroom has a window facing south and has twin built-in wardrobes, with a door leading to the en-suite shower room, which is fitted with a modern white suite.
