To either side of the chimney breast are built-in full height units with cupboards below an open shelf and long glass-fronted display cabinets with 5 fitted shelves above. Due to the open plan nature of the Kitchen and Orangery offering a modern and more informal dining space, the traditional formal Dining Room may as easily serve as a Sitting, Music Room or Library.
Kitchen – The Kitchen is fully fitted in an array of units from the luxury German brand SieMatic, finished with seamless countertops and edged with hard-wearing stainless steel. Integrated are Siemens oven, steamer and coffee maker with units below housing integrated fridge and freezer with a central pantry cupboard.

The peninsula unit has wide Induction hob with stainless steel cube extraction hood above and a range of storage; deep pan drawers with top cutlery compartment and additional cupboards and drawers to the far side. Concealed behind a chalkboard frame for household notes lies the manifold controlling the underfloor heating of the Orangery.
Orangery – Sharing the same Mandarin Stone granite flooring as the Kitchen and matched by the external version of dramatic dark stone laid throughout the Courtyard, the Orangery commissioned from Apropos benefits from a visually seamless transition between indoor and out. With glass lantern to the roof and bi-fold doors composing an entire wall, the exciting light-filled space offers great malleability, providing ample dining space alongside family living and play.
Family/Entertainment Room – The staircase from the Hall leads down into an extensive usable space offering an informal family zone ideal for movie night, gaming and hobbies. Brightly lit with recessed lighting throughout, twin high cupboard doors conceal the household meter boxes.
Laundry Room – Opposite past the Downstairs WC, lies the dedicated Laundry Room fully fitted with white, hi-gloss units smartly contrasting the grey Franke composite sink with integral drainer and black granite-effect countertops. Below the counter is space for both washer and dryer. The Closet opens into useful storage area for coats and boots and is home to the water pressure cylinder, ensuring excellent water pressure throughout.
Drawing Room – The splendid proportions of the Drawing Room delight, with the original, tall, twin windows framing lovely views across period properties interspersed with statuesque mature trees bordering the Castle Pool. A grand room retaining its original black mantelpiece with decorative etched motif home to a new tile surround in metallic greys with warming electric, coal-effect fire.
