The smart contemporary kitchen element has a range of high gloss base and wall units in contrasting tones, surmounted by Silestone worktops with upstands and features both an integrated fridge and freezer together with illuminated wine cooler.

The original brick fireplace has been exposed and opened out to receive an electric Rayburn with tiled splash backs. This is an Aga brand and features a double plate electric induction hob beneath the traditional chrome domes, together with a fan oven and large capacity traditional oven with front warming feature. Adjacent to this is an eye level integrated high capacity Smeg Cyclotherm fan oven and brill.

The utility room is accessed directly from the kitchen with appliance spaces and plumbing for automatic washing machine and dishwasher beneath a Silestone counter top together with the central heating boiler and Oso high capacity pressurised hot water system. The under floor heating manifolds are also housed here for ease of maintenance.

The dining/living areas have windows to the front and double glazed French doors opening onto the southerly facing patio garden.
