The accommodation extends to the first floor which in its current configuration is dedicated entirely to the principal suite, dressing room and en suite shower room. The principal bedroom enjoys the best of the views and feels bright and spacious with built in storage. The adjacent dressing room could become a third bedroom easily and would certainly make for a nursery or children's bedroom in its current form, due to the bank of very generous wardrobes and storage. The en suite bathroom includes underfloor heating, a double shower and some modern luxury including the back lit mirror. A property of this sought, featuring subtle touches that contribute to the most enjoyable and comfortable home life is rare, certainly in such a special location.
