Attention to detail is present throughout with the addition of Perrin and Rowe taps. A range of high specification integrated appliances have been installed which include a Fisher and Paykel cooling drawer. The kitchen continues to impress with the addition of a breakfast area which is flooded with natural light from two ceiling skylights. A well-crafted utility room includes a double butler sink and a useful thermostatic drying cupboard along with ample storage. The downstairs shower room is equipped with luxury Lefroy Brooks fittings and finished with Fired Earth tiles. Under floor heating is present throughout the kitchen, utility room and ground floor shower room.
