Furthermore to the north side of the property are 2 bedrooms, a refitted utility area and separate cloakroom.

The property is divided into another wing which is situated to the west. There is a long corridor which adds even more character to the quirky home originally architect designed home built by Mr & Mrs Harrison in 1964. Genota was designed and built for a sea caption J.M Hulsken and his wife as a retirement property. The property has a mix of Scandinavian architecture and the elegant style of ships that Mr Hulsken would have worked on. These original features married with the sympathetic improvements carried throughout really work. The corridor leads to a further 4 bedrooms, one with an en-suite and a family bathroom which have all been modernised by the current owners.
