On the first floor is the sitting room with marble fireplace and French doors to the balcony; a large contemporary-style kitchen/dining room with a granite-top island; a study/TV room; utility room; guest WC, family bathroom with jacuzzi bath and power shower, and two double bedrooms.
Outside, the house is split level. At the front of the house, there is a paved driveway with ample car parking space and lawn area, which is all at ground floor level. The back of the house is at the level of the first floor and consists of a large, paved patio area.
Pros: Balcony also leads to patio at the back.
Cons: The ground-floor windows are all at the front.
