Set back to the right is a 2 storey lean-to wing with a 20th century door in an ashlar surround and above is a single 2-light casement in a chamfered surround. The north front is largely blank with two 6-pane casements to the left, that to right within the original door opening. Above is a single casement in a chamfered surround.

The extant fireplace has a massive cambered stone lintel. Beams remain throughout. The first floor retains timber lintels to window openings, and within the south wall are traces of previous stone mullions to a former 4-light window.
