The richest appointments in this enormous house are to be found here in this room, the lord’s solar, its paintings and tapestries illuminated by the warm sunlight shining through its windows. A comfortable reading chair sits with its back to the windows, providing ample lighting for a leisurely afternoon spent perusing some salacious tome. A polished table sits between two more chairs just in front of the fireplace, just the right size for a platter of treats and a couple of brandy glasses.
