Walking in through a grand entrance hall to find an elegant imperial staircase
, this five-bedroom home which is set in a semi-rural village location screams sleek and stylish.
The sweeping imperial staircase
has a wrought-iron balustrade with The drawing room is especially stately, with its semi-circular bow window and stunning views across a garden with its ha-ha overlooking the paddock.
The best and most congenial part of the building is the imperial staircase
which rises, beyond round arches, from the entrance hall (and behind which now stretches the arid space of the Ondaatje Wing with its giant escalator).
Marbled pillars frame the oak imperial staircase
that leads to a half landing before dividing in either direction, ?anked by oak and painted panelling.
Any redevelopment scheme must be approved by the Welsh Assembly Government's historic environment agency Cadw, which has already ruled that the facade and imperial staircase
must remain a feature.
