Double doors from the hall lead to the dual aspect dining room which has an original pitch pine floor and corner fireplace. Beyond is the kitchen, featuring bespoke oak units and granite work surfaces. There is a Smeg electric oven and hob with an extractor over, an integrated fridge and a dishwasher.
