The room has stately high ceilings with decorative cornicing and concealed panelled window shutters, typical of the period. At the far end of the dining room a glazed panelled door leads to the inner hallway where there is access to the drawing room, kitchen and stairway to the two further floors. There is a utility room and WC off the kitchen through which you can access the rear garden. The drawing room is an elegant room with two glazed casement French doors with fine glazing bars, enabling unobstructed views onto the garden, the main bay being embellished by matching sidelights giving this room a wonderful capacity for natural light, whilst being sheltered by direct sunlight provided by the verandah which also creates the overhead balcony for the first floor. There are, again, concealed panels encasing window shutters. This is truly Victorian design at its element. The room also has an original fireplace with pretty tiling and a beautifully carved mahogany overmantel. The period high ceiling is adorned with cornicing and picture frame moulding.
