Leading from the hallway is the impressive open plan living space which is the heart of the home and perfect for entertaining. The living space features a wonderful double height vaulted ceiling with windows framing a substantial chimney and fireplace with wood burning stove transforming the room in the cooler months. The room has been thoughtfully designed to offer glimpses of the beautiful gardens from every angle and also offers a set of bi-folding doors opening to the veranda and garden which really brings the outside in. There is plenty of space for a large dining table which is perfect for family gatherings. The kitchen overlooks the rest of the living space and is neatly divided by a practical island with inset sink and space for bar stool seating making this a sociable area. At the centre of the kitchen is the dual fuel Rangemaster stove with gas hob and electric oven with attractive tiled surrounds and is framed by bespoke units and shelving.
