The dining area is slightly off set from the living space and enjoys a lovely outlook over the front garden and leads through to a westerly facing conservatory with views over the garden and beyond. The kitchen breakfast room, which is situated to the front of the house, is a smart modern affair with beech fronted units complimented by glazed display cabinets and a off white counter top, glazed ceramic tiles add a splash of colour and there is space for a breakfast table to enjoy a morning cuppa.
