At rear, the E gable may have formerly has a chimney; parallel range and flat roofed extension; tall cross range behind porch.

Panelled doors (some renewed); those to dining room are Regency with fluted pilasters and traceried rectangular overlights; this room also has dado rail and panelled shutters. C16 part to rear has chamfered beam and corbelled stone winding stairs; window opening in former rear wall of original building.
