Moving into the spacious kitchen/diner, which offers amazing sea views and plenty of natural light both from the large picture window overlooking the sea and from the atrium roof window, you will find a lovely dining area where you can dine in style. The elegantly designed kitchen is fully equipped with sleek work tops, an electric oven with ceramic hob, microwave, fridge, freezer, dishwasher, washing machine, tumble dryer and wood burner. You will also find a bathroom complete with hand held shower and a WC. Going up to the first floor you will find two cosy bedrooms.
