Off this are two bedrooms and a bathroom which has a bath with shower over, shower screen and wet walling, washbasin and WC. The living room has a wall mounted gas heater. Off the living room is the kitchen which has wall and base units with sink, gas cooker point with extractor hood, gas boiler and plumbing for washing machine.
