The dining kitchen sits to the right-hand side of entrance hall and spans the depth of the property with windows on three sides allowing plenty of light. The kitchen area sits to the front end of the property and provides a great range of floor standing units with a large central island, all under a combination of timber and light granite worktops. There is a double sink with mixer tap, integrated dishwasher, space for a wine fridge, a Range style cooker with extractor over and an American style fridge freezer. To the other end of the room is the generously-sized dining area with French doors opening out to the rear garden and a set of double doors leading back into the entrance hall.
