This beautifully laid out kitchen is double aspect and offers superb views across the gardens to the rear. A vaulted garden room is a wonderful addition to the ground floor entertaining area, a further formal dining room and elegant drawing room with traditional open fireplace compliment the modern end of the property. A spacious and well-equipped utility room and cloakroom complete the ground floor accommodation.
The first floor offers a newly refurbished and redesigned master suite, benefitting from a generous en-suite shower room and dressing room.
