      Two staircases give access to the first floor where there are four attractive bedrooms which are served by two en suite shower rooms equipped with contemporary sanitary ware with chrome fittings and a principal bathroom with Catchpole & Rye copper bath. A further staircase leads up to the attic floor which offers wonderful potential for an additional bedroom and bath/shower room (subject to the necessary planning consents.)
