Stairs from the dining area lead up to a spacious first floor landing which has the potential to be reconfigured. The principal bedroom is located to the front of the house with a family bathroom next door, whilst the second bedroom is located to the rear and enjoys a garden view.
Outside, the property is approached via a wrought iron gate, with a low wall retaining a small, paved area. The south facing rear garden backs onto the ancient city walls and features an attractive weeping pear tree, wooden decked seating area extending to a paved terrace bordered by beds with mature plants and shrubs.
