The living room continues through with the same oak strip flooring from the hall and has double doors opening out onto the garden patio area.

The excellent dining/ sitting room is of similar proportions, also with log burning stove and with oak framed wood wall panelling to half height and further double doors to patio.

The kitchen includes a useful walk-in pantry cupboard and is fitted with a custom built range of oak wall and base cabinets complemented by black granite work surfaces including a twin bowl sink unit plus Karndean Welsh slate effect flooring.
