French oak flooring has been used in the Dining Room with Delacroix Limestone across the whole Entrance and Reception Hall area. Sophisticated wall and window treatments and modern bath and shower room fittings combine skilfully with the period architectural detailing, creating a superb family residence which is warm, welcoming and perfect for entertaining.
