On the first floor, there are five bedrooms in total, one of which is located in the roof space above the additional sitting room and is currently open to the staircase. All of the bedrooms are a very reasonable size, three of which having built in wardrobes. The family bathroom is fitted with a matching suite and includes a corner bath and separate shower cubicle. Completing the first floor is another shower room, accessed from both the landing and inner hall.
