A very large, gorgeous traditional kitchen with all the usual amenities, two electric steel hobs, worktop microwave, a worktop oven with grill and an Aga for the winter, fridge and a freezer and a washing machine; a fine Belfast sink and masses of space.
There is the most wonderful massive Aga that is always chugging away through the winter months making sure this sociable area is always warm and always ready for cooking or just boiling a kettle. (Not available through the summer).
