The drawing room which is adjacent is vaulted and open to the roof complete with revealed roof truss and curved gallery landing above the working open fire.

The accommodation to this end of the house is completed by the formal office with window over looking the front door and drive and vaulted ceiling as well as the boot room which is a spacious and useful room for such a rural dwelling.
