The famous elliptical stairwell and Inner Hall at Sharpham House

The Inner Hall is truly spectacular with its famed dramatic elliptical, cantilevered staircase and domed rooflight. 

The staircase is a masterpiece of 18th century architecture. The staircase is keyed by the torsion of the curves, like an arch laid on its side. It is made of Portland stone, bought up the river from Dorset. See more by clicking here
