"The uppermost landing of the staircase gives direct access to the Dining Room and to the Ante-Room, which by a beautiful doorway communicates with the Drawing Room. The latter has a very rich ceiling of Jones's work, formerly, as shown by Sir John Soane's drawing (of about 1812), surmounted by a small oval dome or lantern, removed, no doubt, when the upper storey was added to the building."
