Upstairs we have two large bedrooms both with their own en-suite shower-room, however, if you prefer a bath there is a family bathroom downstairs. The bedroom has built-in hanging space, dressing table, kingsize bed, bedside tables. The whole house has central heating, underfloor downstairs & radiator upstairs. We have also installed a heat recovery system, not to recover heat but ensure that the atmosphere in the house is as wholesome as possible. As the fresh air is taken into the house it passes through filters which extract some of the particles in the air, the system will extract the stale air from the house. This house is neighbour to our other house Heatherbell. More
