The kitchen is a beautiful Italian design in high gloss white and nero black granite. All kitchen units are bespoke and were fitted by Kitchen Italia. The nero black granite provides a dramatic counterpoint to the gloss Al Fresco doors.

One of the design briefs was to have a minimum of joins in the granite worktops. This has been achieved to beautiful effect, there being only one! The huge 2.1m x 1.2m island worktop was created out of one piece of granite and, weighing in at nearly 400kg, was specially craned in!

The kitchen provides a substantial amount of storage space and there are many 1000mm wide, soft closing draws. LED blue under lighting creates a superb night-time effect. Sinks and taps are by Blanco with the waste disposal supplied by Insinkerator.

We chose a fully clad stainless steel Maytag American fridge-freezer which has online filtered water and automatic ice disposal. The two ovens, one with combination microwave are top of the range Miele. There is also a full size integrated Miele dishwasher.

The central island contains a state-of-the-art “Miele Panoramic” induction hob and extractor canopy. The induction hob will boil a pan of water in less than 90 seconds!

For the wine connoisseur a built-in 57 bottle wine fridge can be used for red or white wine.
