From the main reception room, a hallway leads through to two double bedrooms, each with fitted wardrobes and one with access to the private terrace and a bathroom suite. A second separate bathroom is off the hallway. The apartment has been finished to the highest of standards and is wonderfully light and airy with original period windows and lofty ceilings.
