A rear hallway also leads off the kitchen area and brings you through to an adjacent utility room, a stylish shower room and a large light-filled office with velux windows and two sets of French doors opening on to the rear garden. This could be set up as an excellent guest bedroom. Upstairs there are three charming bedrooms, one with ensuite w.c. and the main bathroom. Two of the rooms are generous double rooms and all have fitted wardrobes. Outside lies the 'piece de resistance' - a magnificent rear garden extending to c.112ft in length with an additional paved patio area (c. 25ft x 10ft) which is ideal for Al Fresco dining. The garden houses an abundance of mature trees, climbers, shrubbery and flowerbeds and is the perfect oasis in the heart of the city.
