Practical work surfaces, plumbing for two machines and undercounter space for a fridge means time is on your side to design the kitchen of your dreams- and there's room to extend subject to consents- and the electric oven could stay, subject to circumstance.

Outside, a sun terrace by the house is perfect for parties and there's a path to the detached garage and storeroom/workshop. Stepping up to a sunny lawn for play with deep borders so vegetables and fruit can be incorporated, there's also a secret wildlife garden with glimmers of the sea to explore at the far end, shaded and made private by mature trees.
