Welcome - The Entrance
The house is Edwardian and sits in a conservation area and the Edwardians weren't big on light entrances so a lot of hard work has gone into making this entrance as light as is possible. The front door is enclosed in a pillared portico which also blocks out quite a lot of light.
Marble floors, mirrors to give a sense of space and light, black stair carpet to pick out the black in the marble flooring, Lincrusta frieze finished with an aged look, lots of light fittings and a collection of mirrors on the wall leading up to a first floor landing with floor to ceiling mirrors.
Is was an expensive task to bring light to this space I dare not add up just how much all the light fittings and mirrors cost.
