A bright airy home with great emphasis on light – with big cottage style windows, and light cream ceramic tiles reminiscent of marfil marble with bronze tiles inset in patterns throughout the ground floor. The main entrance is via a half door into the large porch. There are three windows and a skylight bringing light into the porch and a large triangular internal window carrying that light into the main house. The L shaped sitting room comfortably seats 9 on brown leather recliners arranged around an open flame gas fire, and 46″ flat screen LCD TV with surround sound. The large beech finish fitted kitchen comprises a concealed siemans dishwasher, built in stainless steel double electric oven by Zanissi, and microwave at eye level. 5 ring Gas cook top, and large stainless steel Fisher Paykel fridge freezer. All the stainless steel appliances are coated with a finger print proof shield. The counter is carved from a pale cream stone – very reminiscent of marble but more resilient. The central heating system is Gas fuelled underfloor heating, with radiators upstairs. The water system is a closed fully pressurized system. There are three bathrooms. The main one on the ground floor serves the two ground floor bedrooms and boasts a large two man Jacuzzi bath, marfil marble mosaic tiles, and wall hung toilet. The two ensuites upstairs have showers, wall hung toilets, and built in cupboards. One is decorated in black and white mosaic, the other in white with blue and beige seastone mosaic. The open plan staircase is white oak with stainless steel hand rail and finials. The floors throughout the upstairs rooms are a limed oak finish, and the furnishings are antique country style finished in a whitewash giving the upstairs a light airy feel. The house is connected to Broadband.
