The present owners have commissioned a bespoke dark ash media unit making excellent use of the wall space in the living area. There are bespoke blinds by Hillarys to all of the windows and patio doors.

The master bedroom has two large fitted wardrobes, one of which was fitted by Sharps bespoke wardrobes to provide additional storage.
