Over the third floor is an enviable master suite with double bedroom and a large, custom-built, walk through dressing room which has been built in walnut and leads to a private bathroom. On the second floor are two large double bedrooms and separate family bathroom. A bespoke spiral staircase, designed by the award winning architect Felicity Atekpe, leads to the top of the house where there is a comprehensively fitted gym with double doors leading onto a large West facing roof terrace ideal for yoga, pilates or just relaxing.

As you enter the house on the ground floor there is an impressive hallway with a dining room, library and kitchen leading from it. Over the lower ground floor is a cinema room, two bedrooms, bathroom, study and a wine cellar.
