There are three further bedrooms of good size and a recently refitted bath/shower room.

A staircase rises to a spacious attic which has previously been used as a bedroom/games room, and there is a excellent potential to convert the rest of the attic into further bedroom accommodation if required, subject to planning and Building Regs.

A pathway leads to a superb all weather Astroturf tennis court.
