One highlight of the interior is a modern kitchen extension with a feature glass roof lantern and an adjoining utility area. The kitchen has a large central island with a breakfast bar, and a wide recess for the range oven.

Other bright and spacious rooms include a lounge, a sitting room, a dining room, and a study, with a cloakroom to complete the ground floor.
