    The conversion of the building has been done with great sensitivity and care to preserve the historic ambience and architectural details of a building that expresses the values of its age. Designed to be a home, the building still has a sense of welcome and comfort. It celebrates the history of its owners and that of the area that produced the wealth to create it. The apartment was spacious and comfortable although, at 5’2” I could not reach the top shelf of any of the cupboards or the fridge! Fortunately I had a taller daughter with me who could. It was a joy to come ‘home’ at the end of each day and we had a lovely stay. Thank you to everyone who works so hard to keep it looking so wonderful.
