In addition, the fifth bedroom has been transformed in to a reception area with a large glazed double doors, which give access to a fantastic sun terrace with frameless, glass balustrades and a composite deck floor with up lighters and an inset triple-glazed, glass panel enabling a view in to the kitchen.

A spiral staircase leads up from the reception room to a further playroom/bedroom which forms part of the converted loft with Velux windows, which also has doors at each end providing plenty of storage space.

Inside there is a sink, laundry area with plumbing for washing machines, plumbing for a large fridge/freezer, a gardener's w.c. and door to the garden.
