The living room neutrally decorated with cream walls and dusky coral carpets, plus French doors open to overlook the trees and their wildlife in the gardens below. It is lovely and bright due to double aspect windows, and there is room for a sofa in here, as well as a small dining table and chairs. The kitchen resides off the living room, and is formed in a U shape with simple and practical units in baby blue, which are topped with cream surfaces, and the electric hob has been integrated within. The electric oven is integrated below this, but space has been left for a tall fridge freezer and a washing machine.

Along the wide hall you pass the airing cupboard and a storage cupboard for your hoover and ironing board, and next is the bathroom.

This apartment currently has night storage heating and an immersion water heating, plus air conditioning units in the bedrooms. These are not modern however, so you may wish to consider upgrading.
