The living room and kitchen are both open planned areas with a very high degree of colour and tone contrast, a good degree of light both natural and domestic, and a reasonable amount of circulation space, the kitchen has all amenities and provisions including easy grip utensils. 
Both bedrooms, king and twin, give a high degree of provision. Both have the provision of en-suite facilities with corner baths overhead electric showers and WC, both bathrooms have a generous amount of circulation space, good light and good colour and tone contrast. Both baths have a grab rail to assist entering and exiting the bath whilst standing.
