At the foot of the front garden a gate opens to the road making a trip to the shop, the inn or the coast that bit quicker. A pathway at the side leads to the rear courtyard and has a handy storage area for garden tools and furniture. A cellar / tool shed under the stairs to the upper flat is solely for this flat and there is a shared ‘wash house’ which offers additional communal storage for bicycles etc. Further, the lawned area from back of the patio to the far end of the parking bay is also common for the four flats in the block.

The windows in the Lounge and Bedroom were installed in 2018.
