The accommodation benefits, in the main, from secondary and double-glazed windows and doors, and a modern gas fired central heating system.

There is a glazed door opening to the small courtyard garden and another door through to the cloakroom/utility area, which houses the wall mounted gas fired boiler, pressurised hot water tank and gives space and plumbing for a washing machine. The kitchen is well fitted with a range of base and wall mounted units, woodblock worksurfaces, underset ceramic butlers sink, integrated Neff dishwasher and has a new small range style electric cooker. There is alcove space for an upright fridge freezer and an understairs store cupboard. The cellar is decorated, has laminated flooring and is radiator heated. The first-floor front room can double as either a good additional reception room (it is at the moment utilised as their sitting room), having been styled with a contemporary wall set gas fire (currently disconnected), or as a comfortable main double bedroom, with views to the front of the Unitarian Meeting House. There is also a well-appointed main bathroom and another bedroom which opens to the rear to the balcony sitting area, through glazed double doors. The second floor affords two further bedrooms which are well served by the family shower room between them. OUTSIDE The yard, which can be seen on the floorplan beyond the kitchen, gives a good space, together with the first-floor rear balcony, for storage and a table and chairs, and being south facing benefits from the sun almost all day, when it's out. The ground floor yard is wall enclosed and affords space to store the bins to the rear.
