Statement of Interest

Room with acanthus cornice (former drawing room) originally contained "an excellent wooden chimney-piece of about 1790 with finely carved floral motifs and a sailing ship roundel to the frieze, pilasters with acanthus capitals, entwined dolphins and urns" which appears to have been removed without LBC.
