The kitchen offers ample storage and is complemented by granite work surfaces, a central island, a Belfast-style sink, and integrated dishwasher with space for a range cooker and fridge-freezer.

A wood-burner takes centre stage in the cosy and comfortable sitting room, which also has French doors out to the garden, whilst a separate dining room provides a good-sized space for more formal occasions or lends itself to a variety of other uses.
