The exterior of the property has been completely restored and is well maintained to retain a clean and manicured finish. An elegantly designed interior makes the most of the wealth of original features in this property. By using a simple and clean palette of neutral tones on the walls, and with minimal contemporary furnishings the panelled walls, detailed plasterwork, and rich wood floors are all made the focal point of the design. This is a refreshing approach to interiors for a period property of this kind.
