The split level accommodation includes a splendid large dual aspect living room, a separate fitted kitchen with a pretty little patio adjoining it, perfect for alfresco breakfasts or a morning cup of coffee. There is an excellent double bedroom and a modern luxury bathroom as well as private and visitor car parking provision. The property enjoys its own private garden as well as the use of the communal field at the eastern end of The Falls from which there are delightful far reaching views.
