timber casement. The left hand gable has one ground and one
first floor 12-pane sash, similar first floor window to the
right hand gable. Ground floor right is a canted bay with a
plain parapet with a moulded string below. Windows glazed with
12-pane sash in the centre, 8-pane in the outer lights. The
right return continues in the same style and includes a tall
stair window, cut across by the stair and glazed with a small
pane sash, some glazing bars missing. French windows with low
panels and an overlight with glazing bars are also probably
original. The left return has an introduced C20 French window

a brick lean-to for additional service rooms beyond (north of)
the kitchen wing.

cornices, a stick baluster stair with a mahogany handrail and
newels (parts of balustrade renewed) and original paved floors
to some of the rear service rooms.
