From the inner hall is a second door which leads into the kitchen/dining space with ceramic tiled flooring, black contemporary units, white worktops and integrated appliances to include fridge, freezer, hob, oven, microwave and dishwasher. The original Aga has been retained in the kitchen. The new owner could look to restore the Aga and reinstate the chimney and flue. The dining area has ample space for a table and chairs and again has Velfac glazed composite doors leading to the garden.
