Across the first floor, there is an integrated sound system and the family bathroom completes the internal accommodation featuring a free-standing roll top bath, separate shower cubicle with rainfall head, handbasin set within a vanity unit, toilet and heated towel rail.

A cupboard on the landing houses the LPG boiler that powers the central and hot water heating system.
