The drawing room and sitting room both still have period features including stone-mullioned windows and an attractive open fireplace respectively. The dining room leads through to the large kitchen/breakfast room which comprises the heart of the house. A spacious cellar sits under the stairs. The conservatory lies at the end of a corridor which also leads to the pool complex, with a large indoor heated swimming pool and a games room, plus a large garden room.
