Rear wing also has sash windows, one tucked partly behind the main range rear wall, the main range having been deepened subsequently by about 2 m.
Outbuildings: A small courtyard at rear with dairy at N. Barred windows to the dairy. At the angle where the rear wing of the house meets the dairy block there is a corn drying kiln with a drying floor and a granary with hopper above. Stable and pigeon-loft to N.
