The property has retained virtually all of its original Victorian character and features include a Minton tiled floor, plaster ceilings, architraves and cornicing with some stunning stained glass work.  The principal reception rooms are all well proportioned and with stunning views over the formal gardens to the rear and out to sea. The principal drawing room and dining room have attractive original fireplaces and wooden shutters on all the windows. Doors off the principal rooms provide access onto the rear terraces and gardens. The original conservatory with double height ceiling and cupola was converted into a billiard room in 1894. This is how it remains today.
