A well-appointed drawing room is flooded with natural light from the south-facing windows and glazed door overlooking the garden, and has stripped pine floor, exposed beams and wood burning stove. The second reception room is a generous sitting room with stripped pine floor, exposed brick chimney breast and open fire with limestone surround. Adjoining this room is the stunning kitchen/breakfast room which forms the hub of the house and has a door out to the paved terrace. The kitchen is fitted with a range of classic hand-painted units with black granite surfaces, island and larder units, Belfast sink, cream AIMS electric AGA and an integrated dishwasher, on a stone-flagged floor. A utility room leads to a cloakroom/WC and the integral double garage with additional storage space completes the ground floor accommodation.
