The Upstairs sitting room
Home » Glenalvon Tour » Upstairs sitting
Upstairs Sitting Rooms are quite rare in houses of the Georgian period.
This would have been a family room – notice the wide floor boards made of North American Sugar Pine. Also please note the Georgian painted fireplace.
If you look closely at the floor boards, you may notice a few small squares of board that look like “plugs”, this is where internal dividing walls were installed as needed during the rooms years of use.
If you look through the side window you may be able to catch a glimpse of Michael Byrne’s younger brother Charles’ house – Richmond Villa, which is a much more modest house.
