Upstairs on the first floor there are five fine family bedrooms many with access to a balcony area perfectly positioned to take full advantage of the views beyond, master en-suite and a family bathroom. A further staircase leads to another floor with dormer windows and access to eaves storage currently in use as bedrooms.
