Two of the bathrooms had tiny hexagonal tiles with a Greek key trim around the edges. You can see that the house shifted a bit!We all hated the sinks in this house because they didn't have modern mixing taps. It was impossible to wash your hand without freezing or burning them, or filling the sink. It looks like there's a center tap, but it's the drain.The window seat on the landing was a great place to sit and read. The windows were originally like the three at the top, but my parents had them replaced to let in more light and so they could see out to the back. The center window has my mother's family's coat of arms in it. When we moved, we had that window redone and took that special piece and had it framed. I loved the fireplaces in this house. We used them a lot, especially at parties, of which there were many. This has matched granite stones, two carved stone heads and huge mahogany planks for the chimneybreast. Unfortunately, they were painted later on.
This is the library, always a quiet place in the house. There is an oak mantlepiece, again with two carved heads, and a scroll with the words "A clear fire, a clean hearth and the rigour of the game", a quote from Charles Lamb from Mrs. Battle’s Opinions on Whist. This was also removed from the house.
This is the view looking down into the center hall from the landing. You can see the huge chandelier at the top if the image. Someone's friend was bragging about his kicking prowess and managed to hit the bottom tier of crystals. The living room is off to the right and the dining room to the left. I remember rolling back the rugs and everyone learning to shag!
