Designed with shaker style cabinetry, glorious stone work surfaces, feature central island unit with Belfast sink and breakfast bar, this delightful room enjoys views across the gardens via a tryptic of sash windows. A large utility room leads to two adjacent store rooms, outside access and a cloakroom. For home-workers, a generous, versatile study with fireplace completes the ground floor accommodation.

Outside

Evergreen hedging fronted by neat fencing borders frame the property.

A gravelled walkway follows the contour of the house and continues to the lateral aspect where a secluded terraced area, with water feature, offers a tranquil spot to sit and relax whilst enjoying the south-easterly aspect.
