The entrance vestibule with its original limestone floor opens into a glorious reception hall, which in turn runs the full depth of the ground floor and has an impressive solid stone cantilever staircase with mahogany handrail leading to the upper floors. A door opening set beneath the staircase provides access to the lower ground floor accommodation. There is a separate cloakroom.
The generously proportioned kitchen/breakfast room overlooks the rear garden and includes a comprehensive range of base and wall units; with plumbing for dishwasher and space to one end for an upright fridge/freezer. There is also space for a freestanding electric cooker.
The ground floor reception room has an open outlook to the front across the trees and lawns of the Mall Gardens with full height shuttered sash windows. The attractive open fire place has a solid marble mantle surround matching that in the kitchen. Each of the chimney recess is fitted with adjustable Tonks book shelving.
There are two gloriously appointed formal reception rooms on the first floor linked by the original full height folding doors with open outlooks to the front and rear. The drawing room has three full height shuttered sash windows, which open onto a canopied cast iron balcony running the full width of the house. Both reception rooms retain their original marble fireplaces with cast iron grates. To either side of the chimney breast are two built in wall dressers with fully adjustable Tonks book shelving.
The ground to first floor landing leads to a study/bedroom five, which has its own en-suite shower room. In all, there are four generously proportioned bedrooms arranged over the second and third floors together with a potential sixth bedroom/en-suite bathroom/dressing room reached off the second floor landing, and from bedroom one.
The third floor is currently arranged as a one bedroom flat with its own kitchen/breakfast room and shower room; however the kitchen could provide for a potential en-suite bathroom if required. The two bedrooms on the second floor are served by a family bathroom. Furthermore, there is a useful storeroom reached off the second floor landing and half landing.
The lower ground floor accommodation has recently undergone a major refurbishment with a view to creating a comfortable self-contained flat, or two large en-suite bedrooms and a utility room. However, further minor works are required to complete the refurbishment.
