The intermediate bays have square-headed doors with moulded brick surrounds and hoods. 2-light windows above these. Cornice bands to 1st and 2nd floors have single cut-brick cyma recta mouldings. Original brick finials to gables. Behind the roof are 3 tall chimney stacks with grouped octagonal shafts, moulded at the bases and caps. The rear elevation forms an open courtyard with 2 projecting gable ends, likewise with coping and finials. 1st floor bands. 3-light windows. To centre left is a narrow gabled stair turret with a 4-centre arch door and right of this isthe central chimney stack with diaper brick patterning. Square leaded casements to all elevations. Internally there is an unusually large central hall with exposed chamfer-stopped beams and a broad stone fireplace. Original simple oak spiral staircase in the turret. Smaller late C17 newel staircase in the opposite angle leading to 1st floor NE room which has a fireplace with an inscription dated 1692. An exceptionally complete example of a mid-C17 medium-sized country house. (RCHM Typescript).
