A stone surround frames the main entrance door leading to the timber panelled entrance vestibule and glazed inner doors to the hall. Features include the high ceilings, original cornicing in all main rooms, timber framed bay windows with views to the hills and the exposed floors utilising original or reclaimed timbers and stripped doors. The hall itself is an impressive and welcoming feature with a reclaimed mahogany floor, ceiling arch in the main hall and a winding staircase to the upper floor accommodation. A further part glazed door leads through to the rear hall while off the hall at the front is the lounge with an impressive panelled bay window with former shuttering to side and recessed cast iron fire (converted to gas but could be reinstated to open fire if desired) with the decorative pictorial tiled side panels set within the fire surround and with recessed displays to the side. On the other side of the hall is the breakfasting kitchen open to a casual day room with reclaimed flooring extending throughout.
