Arts & Crafts farmhouse, Hampshire

The main family kitchen is in the centre of the house with a long window, which looks south over the garden and towards the distant views. There is no fixed dining room in the house, but the western end of the transverse hallway was designed to be used for larger parties. The staircase rises in the centre of the house, into a kind of belvedere landing on the south side, with wide, stout oak sills and oak framed windows which have excellent views. The staircase is finely built in oak, with tall square newels. The next level of the staircase leads to another landing behind, which looks out over the front door and thus there are two tower-like features, which play an important part in the composition of the both main elevations.
