It has oak bespoke windows and underfloor heating throughout and offers fantastic open plan living for any family.

    Entrance porch leads through to the utility/boot room with sink and built in cupboards. Oak flooring runs throughout the ground floor giving a seamless flow of the ground floor living space. A bespoke kitchen with large central island unit/ breakfast bar. There is a six ring electric Rangemaster fan oven and built in Hotpoint dishwasher. The dining room has double glass doors out to the terrace with vaulted ceiling benefitting from the natural light which floods through into both rooms.
