To either side, uPVC 6-pane windows in small openings with stone lintels, and a small fire window beside the main stack.

Various irregularly placed windows to the rear, including a central stair window. The farm building attached in line to the lower end has one large opening, the walls apparently heightened to provide a loft. External stone access steps at the gable end.
