This in turn leads through to the ground floor living accommodation, as well as a very well equipped UTILITY ROOM with fitted cupboards, sleek units, Silestone worktop, Belfast sink, washing machine and tumble dryer. A sliding door opens to reveal a ground floor shower room (see details below) with direct access to/from the garden via a side door.

Bi-folding glass doors open to the terrace and garden. The adjacent dining area is ideal for entertaining and features a large wooden table seating ten comfortably. A second set of bi-folding doors open to the terrace from this end of the living room, whilst a central door leads into a glass atrium and access to the first floor via an oak and glass staircase.
KITCHEN Also on the ground floor is an elegantly designed and very well equipped, hand crafted kitchen.
