On the ground floor, which is ideal for entertaining, a double-volume entrance hall leads to generous lounges and dining areas indoors and out. A large eat-in farmstyle kitchen is the pivotal point.

A well-appointed study and guest suite with separate entrance complements the spaces on this floor.
