Centrally set, the utility area is fitted with a base and wall units, stainless steel sink and drainer, there is also space for a washing machine and storage below the staircase.

Accessed from the kitchen, the centrepiece of Garden Cottage is the stunning Orangery which features truly magnificent traditional doors and windows.
