Internally, the property offers brick barrel vaulted ceilings, underfloor heating with solid oak floors and high quality built-in appliances. Externally, the communal rooftop gardens (approximately 5,500 square metres), is where guests can enjoy stunning panoramic 360 degree views across the Solent, English Channel and countryside. These are the only landscaped rooftop gardens on a Grade I listed building in the country. The central courtyard is where the parking spaces are allocated and features a large water fountain.
