The kitchen is characterised by beautiful flagstone flooring, a vaulted ceiling at one end and wooden beams. White shaker style units and wooden worktops compliment a large Britannia range oven adjacent to which is a built-in deep fat fryer. A utility room and cloakroom located off the kitchen with a useful external door as well as a guest cloakroom located off the entrance hallway.
The delightful reception room sits in the heart of the home and is a truly remarkable space with wooden flooring, a beamed ceiling and fabulous working fireplace. The far wall benefits from floor to ceiling fitted cupboards and shelving and two sets of double doors open out to the front of the property as well as a door to the rear proving beautiful views on both sides.
