Aside from the main apartment, only one other residence shares the main entrance, which leads directly into the main accommodation area. Besides two double bedrooms, one of which has an en-suite shower room, the property also features a bay-fronted living room and a kitchen/breakfast area. In addition to the property's own parking space, the building also has additional visitor parking available.

On entering the apartment, you will be greeted by a spacious inner hallway with a useful storage cupboard. This hallway will lead to two bedrooms, the kitchen, the living room, and the bathroom. In the kitchen and breakfast room, there is a range of wall and base units with space and plumbing for a washing machine and dishwasher. As part of the kitchen, there is also an integrated electric oven and hob, as well as space for a free-standing refrigerator. A spacious living room offers views of the communal gardens through a triple-fronted bay window, which runs from floor to ceiling, ensuring an abundance of natural light. There are two double bedrooms in the apartment, both of which have built-in wardrobes and drawers. Furthermore, the master bedroom features a three-piece en-suite consisting of a black framed walk-in shower, a vanity unit with a wash basin atop, and a toilet.

This area is home to a variety of activities, including water sports, restaurants, bars, theatres, and shopping establishments. There are restaurants and convenience stores in Lisburne Square, which is located in the opposite direction. Similarly, Wellswood offers a variety of shops, restaurants, pubs, churches, and primary schools in a village setting.
