Other integrated appliances include a fridge freezer, dishwasher and a back up oven and hobs for the summer if required. The hot water system is pressurized and includes a 500 litre tank which will more than cater for every eventuality. The tank is housed in an oak framed cupboard with oak ledge and brace doors to the left of the main entrance.
