Jason Lee, national sales manager at SDL Auctions, said: “This property really has to be seen to be appreciated fully.

The kitchen is fitted with a range of modern cupboards with under-unit lighting, granite worktops and matching breakfast bar, glazed display shelves, integrated appliances including pull-out scales, a heated towel rail and a tiled floor with under-floor heating.

Jason added: “This is truly stunning living accommodation, and the high standards are upheld throughout the apartment, which has the feel of a high-end boutique hotel.”

The master bedroom suite is accessed from the inner hallway via a useful dressing room which has a range of wardrobes with part mirrored folding doors providing hanging rails, shelving and overhead lighting.

The bedroom itself has a fitted headboard with matching bedside cabinets and drawers and touch-sensitive bedside lights.
