The first sitting room exudes a cosy elegance, with a large window offering a picturesque view of the back garden. A focal point in this room is the solid fuel burner, nestled within a natural stone surround and crowned by a wooden mantelpiece. The room is adorned with a tasteful blue carpet, a wooden-clad ceiling, and five wall lights that add to its traditional charm. Connected to this sitting room is a delightful sunroom, separated by a wooden and glass door. The sunroom is flooded with natural light streaming in through its expansive windows and glass double doors that open to the back garden. A practical utility room can be accessed from the porch, complete with fitted units, a sink, a window, a door to the back garden, and a solid interior door leading to the kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is a chef's dream, featuring fully fitted cabinets with a dark marble effect counter top and a highly functional island. This culinary space is equipped with a Stanley cooker, built in Bosh food processor, and a double built-in oven. The tiled floor allows for easy maintenance, and there's ample room for a large dining table, perfectly situated by a window overlooking the garden. A cased opening leads seamlessly to the second sitting room, which boasts three windows, offering views of both the front and side of the property.
