A wooden door opens into the spacious porch with ceramic tiled floor, wall lights and ample room for shoe and cloaks storage. The sitting room benefits from a feature bay window affording abundant light and the elegant open fireplace provides a wonderful focal point. The open plan kitchen dining room is an ideal modern space featuring a range of matching white gloss units with complementary worktops and an inset stainless steel sink. The integrated appliances include an electric oven, four ring gas hob and there is space for further appliances. The ceramic tiled floor flows through to the dining area which is of generous size and could comfortably host a sizeable family dining suite and features a door to the courtyard garden.
