Whilst the accommodation is all on the ground floor, there are 3 slate steps down to the front door and 1 shallow step in the internal corridorGeneral Description
This ground floor apartment is on one level throughout, with the exception of a shallow step in the corridor and three slate steps to access the front door. Though this was once an old Victorian House, it has been double glazed and has been newly carpeted, so it's lovely and snug. The apartment has been tastefully decorated in relaxed neutral colours and there are lots of windows to let the light in. The front door can be found down the left hand side of the building, which makes this apartment feel a little more private.
As you enter the apartment, you walk into a corridor, with a large coat rack on the right and a tray beneath for boots and shoes. The first room that you approach is the twin room, a medium sized room with two single beds, two bedside cabinets with lamps, a wardrobe and a little desk with draws and a mirror. The window looks out to a cluster of white buildings and a little craggy outcrop and there is a sweet little herb garden just outside, so you can enjoy the smells of sage and thyme! The bathroom is opposite the twin bedroom and is modern and minimalist. It has a slate-tiled floor and has been done out in the style of a wet-room, though the shower does have a glass screen to separate it from the toilet. There is a sink with mirror and shaver socket and a heated towel rail. The walk-in electric shower is fairly spacious, so it's easy to move around freely.
The entrance and first two rooms don't really hint at the size of the rest of the apartment, so its a lovely surprise when you walk into the large kitchen-dining area. The dining room is simple and uncluttered, with a generous sized table to seat 4 and patio doors that extend out onto a patio, so you get loads of light coming into the room. If you stand at the patio doors, you look up towards Dale Head, High Spy and Castle Crag. The kitchen is a good size and has a country-cottage look, with its wooden beams, wooden kitchen units, wood-effect floor and copper kettle/toaster/tea-pot/cafetiere/microwave set. The cooker is all singing all dancing, with two ovens, a grill, a plate heater, 5 electric hobs and a heated plate. The cupboards are stocked with everything you will need for group dining and the dishwasher means that clearing up is no effort. There is plenty of room to move around, lots of surface space for preparing meals, a 6ft fridge-freezer and windows surrounding the room, so there is plenty of light coming in. A washing machine sits next to the sink and there is an iron in one of the draws next to the sink. A small work top between the dining room and kitchen has a flatscreen TV, which can be turned to face either of the rooms, so you can keep up to date with the news while cooking or eating!
A second corridor leads on to a double bedroom and living room and there is a full-length mirror in the corridor. The double bedroom is medium sized and has ample storage space: two bedside cabinets with lamps, a set of draws with a large mirror, an L-shaped 5-door wardrobe (with ironing board and clothes hanging rail inside) and a cupboard with shelves. The living room is a welcoming space, with a large corner sofa, single arm-chair, flatscreen TV, and DVD/CD player. The woodburning stove makes this space feel really inviting and the large bay window looks out onto the front garden and up to the wooded mountains beyond. The room has lots of ambient lamps, for those relaxing evenings, and there is plenty of space to stretch out in front of the fire.
The apartment has a large slabbed patio area, which is accessed via the dining room. You can also access it by walking around the side of the house but there is a 5ft wooden fence separating it from the surrounding buildings. At the front of the house, there is a manicured lawn area that has a large circular picnic bench; a communal area for all of the apartments.
