The mansion was inspired by Louis XV's Chateau de Louveciennes and, as such, the door and window fixtures were imported from Paris.

There are colourful works of art displayed throughout the home, from sculptures in the reception to bold prints in the dining room that complement the exquisite printed wallpaper.
