High ceilings are a feature of this house in which one goes down a few steps to the main floor. Right of the entrance are the living room and the dining room. Left of the entrance, past the cloakroom, bathroom and storage closet, one comes to a large play space off which are the children's bedrooms. Upstairs, the parents' bed-sitting room is on a mezzanine looking down on the living room and children's bedrooms.
