Cleverly planned and split between two levels, you can hide away the pots and pans in the sink area and enjoy your meals in the open plan dining room without sight of the dishes used in creation of your culinary masterpiece.

Living Space

Spacious Lounge

Snug leading off the dining area

This double fronted town house is surprisingly big and deceptively spacious. With accommodation spread over four floors, there is oodles of room for socialising together. You enter centrally into the main lounge which enjoys a double aspect of the bay windows creating two comfortable seating areas.

We have made clever use of the former cellar and designed a fantastic games room with a table football to one end. To the other end is another lounge area with huge sofas and a wall mounted 50 inch TV perfect for kid’s film nights, leaving the parents to enjoy dining upstairs! As if this is not enough space in which to lounge about, there is a snug and a smaller TV just off the dining room.
