Over the stairs is the airing cupboard that conveniently houses the gas boiler.

The rear garden is enclosed and for ease of maintenance is designed with paved terraces with intermittent flowerbeds to the side; it provides an ideal area for outdoor eating and entertaining while enjoying the views beyond.
