Here there are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The master bedroom has a charming antique fireplace which is still in working order. There is also a study/ office. The ceilings are similar to those on the ground floor, and there are stunning views to be had over the surrounding countryside. From the first floor another staircase leads up to the second floor. Here there are another 2 bedr ooms with a bathroom, and an attic room. The style of the renovation work is admirable also in this part of the house. The property has a surrounding courtyard measuring 400 square metres. A door from the courtyard leads directly onto the living area, and there is also a separate entrance going directly to the first floor.
