The Flemish Stone, 'Mullion' windows ensure plenty of natural light spills through onto the galleried landing and grand hall making these large and open spaces airy and bright. To the ground floor there are three large reception rooms which are versatile in their use and offer excellent spaces to utilise as desired. Again traditional features such as fireplaces, radiators, picture rails, and mullion windows can be found in these. There is a large kitchen diner that has a recently fitted kitchen ensuring that the large space offered can be used for entertaining or as a family area. Further features are found here with the servant's bell service being one of them.
