The reception hall runs the length of the house with glazed doors at the far end providing a wonderful outlook over the garden. The adjoining dining room has exposed floorboards, a marble fireplace and double doors opening into the drawing room providing an ideal layout for entertaining especially as this room, in turn, opens onto a terrace with steps down to the walled garden.
