The entrance to the flat can be found at the top of the stairs on the first floor and from where the hallway leads through to an impressive drawing room beautifully appointed with an attractive fireplace as its focal point. Three wonderfully large sash windows allow for the entire space to be gloriously bathed in natural day light all graced with deep window seats providing the perfect spot to watch the world go by. The effective secondary glazing ensures this really is a peaceful home with all the benefits of a short walk into the town.
Double doors open into the dining room which is conveniently situated adjacent to the kitchen offering the potential to create a large kitchen/diner or to remain as separate spaces. Both with exceptionally large windows the theme of natural light continues throughout the property.
