At the mezzanine level there is a long corridor leading to a large bath and shower room and a separate toilet and WC. On the second floor there are four large bedrooms and a fifth room (music/reading room) leading onto the balcony and veranda. The third floor comprises of a lounge area and three rooms which are currently used as bedroom, an office, and a toy room. The house has been lovingly maintained and restored to improve its energy efficiency and provide comfortable living.

Adjoining the property is the original part of the house which was built in the 18th century and was later used to provide accommodation for two of the servants (gardener's) and is thus called Gardener's cottage. This has a combined kitchen and dining/lounge room and has a double bedroom upstairs with separate shower/WC room.  Gardeners cottage has been carefully restored to retain its original character and is a popular holiday cottage for tourists.

The gardens are extensive covering over 4 acres with four separate lawned areas all surrounded by walled gardens, large trees, rare shrubs and ferns. There are two footbridges over the river and river banks which form part of the property and the land benefits from having a separate scenic vehicular access around half of the land.
