It should be noted that all the doors are oak including a lovely old renovated original door leading to the kitchen. The kitchen, which is just superb, the main counter in-front of you had been constructed and built using a single piece of oak, so the grain flows across the drawers and offers as well as storage a wonderful seating area. The granite worktops compliment this kitchen which has been designed and orchestrated by the lady of the house. Large larder cupboards grace the back wall and there is a multi-function oven, plate warmer, steam oven and integrated microwave/grill. The six ring gas hob is set off centre of the oak counter, and enables the chef to chat to the guests whilst producing Michelin star quality food. The underfloor heating and log burning stove add a warm and comfortable feeling to the surrounds and the light from the double aspect windows shines provides plenty of natural daylight, inset lighting and a ceiling fan finish this stunning kitchen.

Off the kitchen is a large walk in pantry with space for washing machine and tumble dryer, with inset Belfast sink, and ample shelving to house the objects you must have but seldom use!
