Two further bedrooms with an inter-connecting door are located on the lower level along with two bathrooms, one with en-suite bathroom, and a spacious sitting/dining room, which opens out to an uncovered terrace. A small, separate outbuilding is also on this lot; it is presently used for storage and staff quarters.
