To the rear of this room there is also a door which leads to the internal central hall which has the benefit of both a double and single storage / linen store.

    The breakfast kitchen is fitted with base and wall units and although functional, the vendor does appreciate that this would benefit from an upgrade. The new design of a kitchen would capitalise on space and also breakfast area where currently, there is ample space for a table and set of chairs. With the large window to the front elevation, there is also a further window an door to the side. The kitchen has fitted base and wall units and also a large worksurface area. There is also a door to the front vestibule.
