Mr Colton has long departed and the most recent owner has converted the place into something more like a modern family home – albeit one with a void that runs through the centre of the house from ground floor to roof, allowing light to flood down through all levels.

The rest of the space is fairly flexible, but is currently laid out with a large main living room with central gas fireplace, wooden floors and French doors leading out to the garden, along with a substantial kitchen, six bedrooms, a further four reception rooms and three bathrooms.
