The kitchen is bespoke and has floor and wall mounted fitted cream units under a black granite work surface, the integrated appliances include a twin hob, three oven AGA, fridge freezer and dishwasher. Recently the current owners opened the hall up inti the breakfast area to create this modern set up. The kitchen also benefits from a pantry and adjoining door down to a snug room.
