The window frames are hardwood lead-lighted units with fully opening PVC double glazed to the sun terrace. The property has been upgraded and maintained well with gas central heating and a hand-painted wooden kitchen/breakfast room. Many of the floors are the original but other wood stipped hardwood oak floors enhance the overall appeal of this modern well fitted home.
