A 2-storey range, part of the attached cottage, continues behind the 2-cell range, and there is a C18 single-storey addition to the north-east. Each floor is delineated by continuous string courses which step up over doorway and window openings, as hood moulds.

South-east elevation of stair tower formerly with a 2-light mullioned window, and a single-light opening, the 2 openings separated by a narrow panel of masonry, which at ground-floor level has been removed to contrive a fourth light, giving the ground floor a 4-light window. First and second floors retain separated openings. Attic floor with 2-light chamfered mullioned windows beneath a drip moulding. South-west elevation to the main range has a moulded door surround at the angle of the two ranges, with a massive chamfered lintel and a plain planked door to the side of the doorway, beneath a continuous string course, a blocked former 2-light mullioned opening, which at some time had been enlarged to form another doorway, which pierced the plinth. 2-bay range to rear, with first-floor 2-light chamfered mullioned window to north-east gable. C18 single-storey addition with coped gable, and a re-used timber head to a 3-light mullioned window.
