The exceptional sitting room with original wooden flooring and feature fireplace extends from two large bay windows into the garden room with outlook over the perfectly manicured lawns with established planting to the boundaries that provide a high degree of privacy. The kitchen designed and supplied by Clarity Arts is fitted with high quality units and granite work surfaces, and is a fabulous social space having a large area for family dining in front of the double doors that lead out to the stone flagged outdoor entertaining area. Adjoining the kitchen is a practical separate utility room that provides access from the driveway, and there is an additional reception room to the rear of the house that is ideal for use as a home office or children's play room if required.
