To the rear and accessed from the hall is a lovely modern fitted kitchen/breakfast room with granite worktops, integral dishwasher and microwave and further space for American style fridge freezer and a range cooker. Double doors open out to the rear garden making it a lovely entertaining space and a further door leads to the utility room which has fitted units, sink/drainer unit, space and plumbing for washing machine and tumble dryer and glazed door to the garden.
