One will now enter the house via the original rear reception room which will be used, on occasion, as a formal dining room.
The enlarged opening on the right leads to the staircase hall and aligns with the kitchen doorway beyond, thus framing a view of the rear garden.
The smaller opening on the left, with a new French window and small skylight, overlooks a small lightwell. Two new aligning windows beyond permit a secondary 'enfilade' to the rear garden.
Details such as these, à la Soane Museum, open-up interesting perspectives and increase the illusion of space and daylight. Painted panelling and the restored fireplace emphasise the domestic Georgian proportions.
