Very smart dark wood laminate flooring gives continuity throughout the hallway, dining area, kitchen, utility room and cloakroom. An under-stairs cupboard provides valuable extra storage space.

Beneath a window to the side of the property, the one-and-a-half bowl stainless-steel sink with arched tap and drainer are conveniently adjacent to space and plumbing for a dishwasher. A built-in pantry cupboard provides extremely useful extra storage.
