An attractive return staircase, with recess beneath, rises to the first floor and doors lead to all three reception rooms. Plate rails and a solid wood maple floor, which runs through to the living and dining rooms, add character.

The principle reception, namely the living room, is dominated by a broad recess within which sits a period fireplace with cast iron, multi fuel burning stove.

Further features include plate rails and an impressive bay window which rises towards a vaulted ceiling with exposed beams.

The well proportioned dining room accommodates a bay window, plate rails and open fireplace with storage cabinet built within one of the alcoves.
