In the combined living and dining room, two comfortable double sofas create a cosy area for gathering and relaxing. A television atop an antique wooden sideboard provides entertainment, and a gold-framed mirror, elegant mantle, and a painting of a Scottish landscape serve to ornament the space, with a classic rug adding warmth underfoot.
