Some period features have been retained, notably the parquet flooring to the entrance hall as well as picture rails and the vast majority of the internal doors being original.

From the dining room are double glass panelled doors through into a family room which features an open archway through to the kitchen, which is a generous size, being tiled throughout and offers a range of fitted units with some integrated appliances.
