The wealth of reception rooms at Haygrass House ensure it is both an ideal family home and perfect for entertaining and the proportions, ceiling heights and original features are impressive.

The entrance hall continues into the inner hall from which the beautiful cantivered staircase with roof light above rises to the first floor. There is a library off the inner hall, with south facing floor to ceiling windows and double doors giving access to the gardens.
