Hidden away at the rear of the house, with a large covered external space featuring an integrated concrete planter, the extension provides a much-needed and natural connection with the garden. Internally, the space flows seamlessly from zone to zone, creating the perfect space in which to relax or socialise.

The kitchen is clearly the heart of this home - the AGA and large island add character to the space, while the clean, simple materials palette allows a simple backdrop for the owners superb eclectic style of furnishings.
