INTERIOR: original, or at least mid-C19, doors survive throughout most of the house, decorated with a motif of multiple recessed panels, and this motif is also found on the embrasures of some principal doors and windows; door architraves, formed of grouped circular shafts with corner blocks, also survive; open-well staircase to first floor with neo-Jacobean newel posts and turned balusters, moulded rail and closed string; Tudor-style fireplace in the penultimate room on the east side before the south corner, with 4-centred arch, frieze of quatrefoils, and octagonal engaged columns.
