Entering via the porch with original terracotta tile flooring you will find a large and brightly coloured kitchen. A comfortable dining table sits here with views out onto the breakfast terrace from the patio doors. The units are made by John Lewis of Hungerford; warm oak worktops are complimented with Fired Earth hand-made tiles and a handful of foundry iron inserts. To top it off, there is a Falcon Range cooker for those who love to cook, with lots of cook-books to inspire you. A separate utility houses a cloakroom and shower.

Reflecting the owner’s love of travel, the formal dining room has a striking appeal with blood-red walls and carefully chosen pieces from around the world. Double French doors open up into the sitting room featuring two sumptuous linen sofas and an open fire. A large original piece of artwork above the fire gives this room a vibrant feel.
