The crisp white walls have been tastefully paired with antique mirrors, rattan rugs and wool furnishings. The living room is snug and cosy, with a large sofa to spread out and relax in front of a movie. Original flagstone flooring runs throughout the downstairs, from the living room into the bespoke shaker-style kitchen. Here you'll find plenty of mod-cons for cooking up hearty meals as well as a breakfast bar for your morning coffee.
