On the rear of the house off from the kitchen is a large covered seating area with oven for pizza or bread cooking and BBQ - for grilled meats / vegetables, on those unforgetable lazy luncheons around the table enjoying the summer breeze.

Further on in the hall the large kitchen with traditional fireplace and pantry opening to covered seating area outside. Opposite a twin with ensuite showeroom.
