The south facing front of the property boasts an open entrance porch with Ionic side columns with balcony over and wrought iron balustrades. There are double entrance doors that lead through to the impressive reception/staircase hall with a Minton floor.
An inner/reception hall has double doors leading through to the formal dining room with a high grit stone chimney piece surround, fitted cupboards, tiled floor and French doors leading out to the front courtyard area and gardens beyond.
