This leads to the interconnected drawing room and dining room on the right. These spaces also retain their period features, and a large bay window overlooks the front garden, ensuring it is a bright space. The dining room has French doors with working shutters, that lead to the sunroom.

On the left of the main hallway is the living room, also overlooking the front garden. It has a box bay window and panelled walls, while a stove adds cosiness in the colder months.
