Opposite the drawing room are steps leading up to the study area, staircase to the first floor and door to the dual aspect sitting room with central Inglenook fireplace with stone surround, built in book shelves and bench seating. Off the kitchen there is also a rear hall, separate utility room and rear porch as laid out on the floorplan.

From the rear hall and the study area twin staircases ascend to the first floor. There is an open landing area, off which can be found the master bedroom approached through a fitted dressing area with range of cupboards and an en-suite bathroom with panelled cast iron bath, separate shower and wc.
