The property, as is characteristic for the Georgian era, is ideal for family living and entertaining with accommodation spilt by the Green Baize door with gracious reception room to the front and the kitchen and service rooms to the rear. A Harrods floor plan dating back to 1905 will be left with the property and indicates how the house was used over a century ago. In those days the end of the house was workshop, coals and lamp rooms with servant’s bedrooms above.
