The kitchen/dining room is beautifully appointed with an extensive range of cream fronted cupboards and drawers both at base and eye level whilst integrating quality appliances, all enhanced by solid oak worktops and attractive tiled splashbacks. There's plenty of room for a family sized dining table and chairs and a large utility room offers additional storage and appliance space. There is a cloakroom W/C, office and a large family room which would lend itself as a ground floor bedroom or formal dining room if required.
