have C17 bolection moulded panelling with matching wooden fireplace surrounds.
The dining room and the kitchen, to the left of the entrance hall, both have
remains of open fireplaces. Stop-chamfered spine beams. Room to first floor

and bolection moulded panel to the overmantle. Room to first floor left of
