The original 2 double bedrooms are accessed via the first landing and both contain feature fireplaces and sash windows. The 2 additional double bedrooms and balcony are accessed via an upper rear landing and overlook the charming south facing terraced garden. These bedrooms have wooden floors and double glazing.
The bathroom is downstairs and includes a shower over bath. There is scope to add a further shower room upstairs, subject to investigation.
