The sitting room has its own French doors opening on to a small balcony which would be suitable for plant pots or two compact chairs. The fireplace has a  hearth and slips and a wooden surround. On either side of the fireplace are shelves with dwarf cupboards below. The shelves are ideal for displaying china or ornaments as well as books.

A compact and newly-fitted kitchen leads from the sitting room and comes complete with halogen hob, eye-level oven and a freestanding fridge/freezer.

The bedroom is extended to include an alcove, which could either accommodate a single bed or the head end of a double bed as well as bedside cupboards. There are extensive hanging cupboards on one wall of the bedroom, including some display shelving with a dwarf cupboard below.

The bathroom leads off the hallway and has a new bath with lever taps and hand rails. There is a vanity unit with lever taps and also a WC. The ladder radiator can be used as a towel rail in the summer months.

There is a separate cloakroom off the hall with a WC and small wash hand basin. There is also an additional hanging cupboard in the hall.

Each flat in the Mews has the use of its own lockable attic space of approximately 6ft x 6ft for surplus small pieces of furniture, pictures and suitcases. The attics are on the second floor.

Garages are normally available under a separate contract.
