On the second floor is a further living space which has been designed with the view in mind. Glazing and central French doors lead onto a large balcony which has glazed panels and chrome hand rails and enjoys a 280° view over The Sid Valley along the coast and out to sea. This upper floor living space also provides three Velux windows, fitted cupboards, a sink unit and access into a walk-in sewing room.

To one side a gravel driveway provides ample parking and turning and this leads to a detached double garage which measures approximately 5.2m x 5.3m. The garage has a boarded storage area in the roof space.
