The ground floor has a reception room with arched alcove either side of the fireplace, each containing dummy cupboards and fitted shelving. The first floor has a large landing and two rooms. The larger room might be used as a drawing room or parlour.The smaller room, which might make a breakfast room, has a corner fireplace which was quite a common method of fitting in a fire where there would otherwise be insufficient space. The second floor rooms would probably be used as bedrooms and are high enough in the building to be out of the worst of the noise and smells of the street below. Stairs are a speciality of Anglia Dolls Houses. Although only a simple provincial town house, as you would expect the main stairs in Ely House have stringers and separate stain-varnished treads.
Even the cupboard stairs to the basement and to the second floor are complete. Those to the second floor have winding steps. Height: 42 inches (106.7cm) to top of chimneys - 48 inches (122cm) max. Depth: 20.5 inches (52.5cm) including basement 23.5 inches (60cm) max. I bought my Ely House as an ex-demonstration model directly from Anglia Dolls Houses, travelling to collect it from them where we were made most welcome and shown the premises where each house is made with so much care and attention to detail.
During my ownership there are a few more very minor grease marks where I had curtains positioned behind the windows. However, I must emphasise that these marks are very minor and could probably be easily cleaned off. Anglia Dolls Houses are highly regarded and rarely become available.
