In the combined living and family room downstairs, light hits you on both sides with large open windows giving you a view out to the gardens. Cooking is a joy in the light filled, upgraded kitchen, fastidious cooks will relish in the gas cooktop, stone benchtop, electric oven and dishwasher (included). There is also a separate generously sized laundry (washer included) and WC located off the kitchen.
