The top floor room is currently furnished as a 4th bedroom with twin beds and a large warbrobe. If could very easily be re-furnished with a sofa bed and chairs to convert it's main purpose into a sitting room which could be used as an overflow bedroom as necessary. This would be a logical change as the room has the only direct access to the outside space on the roof so it is a walk-through room.
There is a WC with small hand basin which is useful for when the roof terrace is being used so you don't have to go downstairs to the main shower room.
Split Level Roof Terrace
The roof terrace is in two parts, both of which are large enough to seat 8 people, but the lower of the two areas is the smaller and more intimate.
The door from the upper floor bedroom/sitting room opens directly onto the lower level of the split level roof terrace. There is a canopy over the window and door to provide shade to keep the room cool.
Metal stairs lead to the upper level.
The larger top area has a professional standard BBQ and plenty of space for everyone to sit and look at the interesting view. Wherever you are sitting you be able to see the buildings to the West, the mountain sides to the East and South, as well as the sea outside the harbour to the North.
