Right of the porch the C17 house has stone quoins, single-course brick bands on 2 levels, and double chamfered stone mullion windows in all walls: at the front, of 2 and 3 lights at ground floor (slightly different levels), 2 and 3 lights at lst floor, and 3 lights in the attic; at the side 3 and 4 lights at ground floor, 3 and 3 above; and at the back, 5, 5 and 3 lights.

Interior: the C17 part has ovolo moulded beams on both floors, a diamond-pattern stone flagged floor in the entrance hall, cross-corner fireplaces in both ground floor rooms, an original dog leg staircase with turned balusters, and a purlin roof. Remarkably complete survival of interior detail of this period.
