There is space for further appliances including a fridge freezer, plumbing for a dishwasher, washing machine as well as space for a tumble drier and further under counter appliance. Two double glazed windows overlook the courtyard, as well as a UPVC double glazed door leading out to one end of the kitchen, forming more of a utility area which houses the oil fired boiler with cupboard housing the hot water tank. There is also access to the roof space within this area.

At the rear of the property is the master bedroom, a well proportioned double bedroom with archway leading through to a dressing room-comprehensively fitted with three double door wardrobes and further single wardrobe running along one wall.
