First floor has two 2-light traceried windows - mullions removed to take modern casements. One single-light C14 window and a small window lighting a former newel stair. Internally, ground floor has timber- framed partitions and large chamfered ceiling beams. Hall on first floor has a C14 fireplace and a further C14 window in rear wall - now blocked.
