With practical wood-effect vinyl flooring, the Hallway is naturally lit by the large roof lantern, originally installed to funnel light down to the operating theatres. The hall also includes 2 Gree air conditioners that provide heat in the coolers months, and cooling in the summer.

Sitting & Dining Room – The spacious carpeted room delights in a Diocletian window, the semi-circular classic of Georgian design framing enchanting views over the front drive circle to the river beyond, bordered by its majestic copper beech walk and across Hereford's ancient heart from the Cathedral and Bishop's Palace to the Old Wye and Victoria Bridges. The inviting room with exposed timber beams readily defines itself into living and dining areas to either side of the window and with a highly malleable space between. The Dining Room has ample space for a large dining table to gather family and friends, with a timber beam above discreetly concealing spotlighting. To the far end a beam-framed alcove offers an ideal location for dresser or sideboard. To the Sitting Room the characterful pitched roof makes cosy the ample space for rest and relaxation. The central area with twin wooden bladed ceiling fans with integral lighting offers space for conversational seating or a dedicated reading nook.

Kitchen – The new fully fitted Kitchen was installed in 2022 in palest green soft close units with virtually indestructible, premium Dekton countertops; highly resistant to stains, heat and scratches. The array of storage includes deep pan drawers and a corner carousel unit. Integrated are twin under-counter fridges and a freezer while there is space for a large electric range cooker with black hood above. With a flexible hose mixer tap, underslung are twin stainless-steel Innova sinks incorporating an InSinkErator waste disposal unit.
