Rooms feature an en suite and residents are allowed to bring their own furniture and can choose the decoration to make surroundings more familiar and comforting. The site features two large gardens which can be accessed by residents, as well as a small indoor garden. These spaces give residents different areas to relax in, while car parking space is available for up to 16 cars.
