Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
The exterior of the house is entirely painted, including brickwork, masonry, stringing, quoined corners and window casements the windows themselves glazed with glass. To the rear of the house there is a full-hight door also painted but now faded to a lovely duck-egg blue, which retains its original chamfered brass 'H' hinges. This opens to reveal a ground floor, itself decorated in a chequered pattern ( indicating a further reminiscence of its Dutch ancestry ) This interior has two elevated floors. The top, obviously set aside as servants quarters as it doesn't have 'fancy-wallpaper' as opposed to the ground and first floors which do. Separating these upper floors are two withdrawing papered panels to each, which are about 1" apart. So when in place there are four upper rooms and one ground floor room.
