An island unit is a special feature of the kitchen section whilst the remainder of the room provides plenty of options for the placement of the largest of dining tables, sofas etc. The lovely Sun Room forms a ‘T’ shape with the Living Kitchen and itself features a vaulted ceiling and French doors leading to the garden.

The Drive is located just off Cheapside close to Waltham Golf Club. The village of Waltham provides an excellent range of local facilities including specialist retailers, tea rooms and restaurants, two supermarkets and well regarded schools.
