Completing the ground floor is the heart of the home, the kitchen. This well-proportioned dine-in culinary space offers plenty of natural light. The centrepiece is the stone island bench which has also been used to great effect around the SMEG 5 burner gas cooktop and rangehood. A sleek SMEG oven completes the picture.
