A central flagstone floored reception hall has wide braced doors at either end which open to front and rear elevations respectively. The large drawing room and dining room stand to either side and with the stair hall and panelled library beyond the drawing room. Architectural features abound with chamfered beams, framed ceilings with moulded beams, panelled walls and screens and fine dressed stone fireplaces.
