The open-plan living area is a bright and welcoming environment with patio doors that lead out to a Juliet balcony. The adjoining room could be used as a breakfast room, a dining room or a home office but is currently used as a sitting room. From here, a patio door opens directly onto the roof terrace. The kitchen has benefited from a recent refurbishment and features cool white units, matching work surfaces and several fitted appliances.

The property has three double bedrooms and a luxury family bathroom. The principal bedroom has a dressing area, an ensuite bathroom and direct access to the roof terrace.
