The current owners of apartment 1 have reshaped and landscaped their garden area immediately adjacent to the flat which is now laid to gravel with stepped pathways, raised planters and a west facing paved patio/seating area. It is also enclosed by newly installled fencing. Immediately adjacent to the back door is an external store/meter cupboard.
