Converted previously from a row of period cottages, the transformation into a large family home is admirable. The restoration has retained fabulous features which includes a decorative fireplace with dramatic chimney breast in the entrance hall and original stone flooring. The fusion of materials, oak, red brick, stone and glass have created spectacular architecture with unique attributes. The property is filled with natural light enhanced with the inclusion of open plan living and bespoke glazing which draws light from both elevations.
The open plan reception space is zoned via a multi fuel room divider which creates the sense of a designated dining room and family room. Solid oak flooring flows throughout both rooms with the family room having patio doors connecting to the exterior.

The sitting room is a cosy setting, with bespoke shelving and heritage sage green décor, the room is completed with plush soft carpeting and views over the front garden.
The family kitchen is reached from the main entrance and again enjoys the quirks of a period restoration.

The L-shaped kitchen wraps around the snug and is arranged with contrasting white and grey cabinets. With granite work surfaces in both starlight white and anthracite grey, the kitchen will include 2 Bosch electric ovens, 4 ring induction hob with glass extractor fan, dishwasher, double wine cooler, fridge and freezer. The high gloss tiled flooring sweeps throughout the kitchen, with the room enjoying individual architectural design and great connectivity to the gardens.

A great space for storage and conducting all household laundry duties and also for the family dog to dry off after appreciating a lengthy walk in the surrounding countryside.
