The property is entered via an enclosed entrance porch where the original ornate floor tiling is still intact.

This room also features the original fireplace and window which looks out to a courtyard area in the rear garden. The spacious kitchen with breakfast dining area and underfloor heating is located to the rear of the house and an extension has been added to the end, which is separated by sliding doors, but could be utilised as an open plan dining area or a Den / Family living area. The extended area also benefits from underfloor heating. A utility room and wet room have also been added to the side of the property off the kitchen, making this an extremely functional property for the busy modern day lifestyle.
At the top of the main stairs is the return level of the original house, which is where the bathroom, WC and one of the bedrooms are located. A small flight of steps lead up from the return landing to the first floor where the further two bedrooms are positioned. Each bedroom includes an original fireplace. Stairs lead from the first floor to the attic level which is currently used as a further bedroom and gaming room.
As well as the array of charming period features and upgrades that the current owner has carried out, one of the appealing highlights of this property will be the vehicular access to the rear, which is accessed via a communal gated laneway for residents.
