    The front-facing living room is the ideal place to retreat if you fancy a break from the kitchen area (although who would?). The allure of this room is surely the idea of watching a Christmas movie beside a roaring fire? That’s all we want for Christmas – just waiting for an invitation.

    This is the hallway leading directly into the open-plan kitchen. From the regency style front door to the grand staircase, this house really makes a great first impression – and that’s before you’ve even seen the kitchen of dreams.
