The room features a stone fireplace and beautiful Oregon pine beams. Across the hall the kitchen is the heart of the house with warmth radiating from the oil-fired Aga and the comfort of a stunning oak parquet floor underfoot.
The kitchen is also dual aspect with views across the beautifully maintained gardens. The kitchen leads into a large room at present used as a master bedroom with bathroom, walk-in wardrobe and French doors opening onto a patio facing the morning sun. This room could equally be used as a breakfast room or dining room.
The hardwood staircase in the entrance hall is contemporary in design with a gentle gradient ascending to the first floor. On the right hand landing is a generous bathroom and two bedrooms with radiators heated from the back boiler. The left hand landing leads into a large double bedroom.

This annex could easily be turned into a self-contained apartment for guests. Alternatively it offers huge opportunities for imaginative use.
