To the opposite side of the hall lies the dining room with equally beautiful windows and views. There is a large kitchen with vaulted ceilings, extensive fitted cupboards and access to the enclosed, gated courtyard. Off the kitchen is a large breakfast room with further fitted storage units and display shelves.
