The 1GB fibre broadband combined with the uniquely flexible layout of the property will allow ample opportunities for the new owners to use it for a variety of purposes.

Also on this floor is the games room with ample space for table tennis, fussball and other family games. A separate large TV lounge is situated on the second floor.
