A door also leads to the comfortable sitting room, with heavily timbered ceiling, exposed wall timbers, huge Inglenook fireplace with Oak Bressumer beam and wood burning stove, windows to front and rear providing delightful views along with a glazed door to rear and timber flooring. The kitchen dining room is a superb room for entertaining with a wealth of exposed timbers, wooden flooring, fireplace recess with "Esse" range oven, kitchen units beneath wooden preparation surfaces and butler sink.
