Along the west elevation on the river, the hall, living room and dining room open to a glass conservatory. The plentiful original architectural elements highlight the distinctive nature of Glen Roy: over-sized windows and doors with a Egypto-Greco surrounds with complex moldings and significant amount of old glass, heart pine floors, and plaster walls & ceilings.
