Triple southwest aspect windows provide wonderful garden views. French doors open from the entrance hallway to the inner hall which also provides French door access to the sunny courtyard.

A large central island provides a lovely casual family dining space. There is an AGA cooker complemented by two Neff ovens, a warming drawer and induction hob.

These three connecting areas provide a fabulous living space. The orangery has extensive sliding patio doors opening onto the terrace which is a wonderful alfresco spot to enjoy the peaceful surrounding garden grounds.
