Like the Museum nearby, Donne Place is dotted with historical objects. A grandfather clock ticks in the sitting room (opposite the front door), where pieces of a stone frieze stand on white shelves. Weathered leather chairs flank a fireplace on the left, and straight ahead is the kitchen. With white cabinets and a sloping skylight, it’s modern, but not without the odd vintage touch, like the seascape artwork hanging opposite the dining table.
The paved garden, out through glass doors, is bordered by climbing flowers and a bench. In the sitting room is a staircase that leads up to the first floor. Here you’ll find a bathroom, as well as the master bedroom, which has a mahogany sleigh bed and a contemporary ensuite. On the second floor, there’s a cream-walled double bedroom.
