A latched door gives access to the stairs which lead to the first floor, and a few steps rise into the beautifully fitted farmhouse style dining kitchen with its revealed brickwork and offering a range of base cupboards, drawers, and matching wall cabinets. Superb oak worktops are inset with a ceramic sink with tiled splash backs and an AEG induction hob with a glass splashback protects the lovely, exposed brickwork behind. There is an extractor hood over, an integrated Neff hide and slide double fan oven with separate combination oven over and grill, Smeg dishwasher and spaces for an American larder style fridge/freezer and washing machine. A window looks out over the garden, the floors are tiled and door which would be used as your everyday entrance leads out into the small courtyard with garden beyond.
