There is also a dual aspect fireplace separating the dining and living area. Multi spectrum lighting has been cleverly concealed at the ceiling level giving a beautiful effect to match your every mood. The entertainment systems have been designed in a way that there are no wires, cables or plugs on display, giving everything a streamlined and clean look.

The master bedroom has a full wall of floor to ceiling spacious wardrobes, drawers and storage space.
