The capacious principal suite located on the second floor has truly unrivalled waterside views incorporating the historic Cobb. The principal bedroom has a large en-suite bathroom with a walk in shower and free standing bath, with a separate dressing room and walk in wardrobe.

The landing space of the second floor provides a superb area which could be used as a quiet reading space/library/office, with a door giving access to the back garden, from which unrivalled views can again be fully appreciated. Completing the property is a gym, plus a sauna and steam room.
