Ft and offers warm yet contemporary living space on the first and second floors.

There is a very large sized Utility Room situated off the hall which has a Megaflow pressurised hot water cylinder, washing machine, space for a tumble dryer, ceramic tiled floor and plenty of additional space for storage/drying of clothes. A further door leads into a very useful walk – in storage room which houses the Worcester boiler and provides ample storage.

Bedroom Two is conveniently situated across from the Cloakroom and being of a very good size, can easily be also utilised as a Study/Office. There is a twin sliding deep wardrobe and the aspect looks towards the very pleasant landscaped Courtyard.
The main Living Area is also accessed from the reception hall via double doors and is an impressively proportioned room. The outlook from the French doors is that of the Canal and a very handy addition are the Silent Gliss roller blinds that have been fitted since these do not impede the opening of the doors and are also very easy to use. The layout of this room has been cleverly designed, since there is scope for one end to be utilised as a Snug as you approach the stairs to the Upper floor.
The Kitchen/Dining Room is located off the living room. Four sets of tall glazed windows open in bi-fold offering an expansive, unfettered view of the City and really embrace Canalside living at its best. Once again, the Silent Gliss roller blinds have been fitted. A very useful addition partially separating the Kitchen area is the breakfast bar for less formal eating.

The integrated appliances are by aeg and include a bean to cup coffee machine, 2 Oven/Microwaves, Steam Oven, Wine Cooler, Gas hob with a complimenting stainless-steel extractor over, dishwasher, large fridge and a large freezer. This is clearly a well thought space providing plenty of storage cupboards and a wonderful openness.
Walnut Stairs from the living area lead to the Upper Floor where the accommodation is accessed by a long galleried landing. The landing is a fantastic flexible space, currently utilised as a secondary Living Space. This level offers access to the double length Balcony via a pair of sliding doors. The balcony itself is a delight, with a rendered high wall on one side affording a sense of privacy and lower railings on the other side.
