This room is flooded with light from the four windows and the patio door which leads to a pretty terrace with BBQ and wonderful views of the garden and surrounding area.
Double wooden doors lead into the beautiful, bright master bedroom which was originally two rooms and has two large windows and patio doors to a Juliet balcony. This room has an air conditioning unit.
At the end of the hallway is a large walk in storage cupboard and to the right of this is a huge dressing room with built in wardrobes and a bathroom which has a bath with shower attachment, WC, sink and heated towel rail.
