The living room has a pleasant, light feel thanks to the large open space measuring 9 metres in length, the adjoining balcony with French doors, ceilings with a height of around 2.7 metres, and characterful details such as stained-glass sliding doors and the wide bay window that gives you a view of the street. The open kitchen is situated to the rear of the home and equipped with the following fitted appliances: refrigerator, freezer, dishwasher, 4-burner gas hob and the central heating boiler (AWB, 2005).

The home benefits from an attic room on the 4th floor measuring more than 10 sq. m.
The attic room is situated to the rear of the property, adjoining a flat roof that invites the possibility of creating a roof terrace.
Several members of the home owners’ association have already made this improvement to their own properties, and the current owner has already obtained the necessary official permissions from the municipality.
You also have the option to purchase extra storage space above the attic room (effectively 6 x 3) and to add this to the attic room. This adaptation would cost €1,080 per square metre.
