Between the windows right of door a large raking buttress inserted in C20. First floor has a 3-light to eyebrow, a 2-light C19 with bars at eaves, and small 2-light to eyebrow. Right return is plain, left return has stone buttress or former flue, both ends of roof hipped. At back is projecting stair turret with casement and an eaves casement; to right are French doors and a further eaves casement. A flat-roofed extension not of special interest.

Much of the front wall appears to be in cob, and there is no buttress.
