The entrance hall is bright thanks to a fan light above the front door, and leads to the traditional grand reception rooms found in this type of home, the interconnected drawing room and dining room.

Both feature original floorboards, marble fireplaces, original window shutters and decorative ceiling cornicing, while there is also a bedroom at the back of the house on this level.

The kitchen has marble worktops, a Belfast sink, and an island with breakfast bar, ideal for the family to gather round when meals are being prepared.
