Ground floor, 2 mid-C19 sashes of 4 lights, one C20 casement. First floor, 2 similar sashes, 2 C20 casements. Early C20 half-glazed door with sidelights at front of C19/20 hipped porch. C19 fretted bargeboards on gable of crosswing. Axial stack rebuilt in C19 from attic level. Wide wood-burning hearth in hall, facing to left, with chamfered mantel beam with lamb's tongue stops, reduced by modern brickwork. Late C16 inserted floor in hall, comprising a chamfered axial beam and plain joists of vertical section. The service bay has exposed studding, some of it original, and plain joists, some of horizontal section and original, lodged longitudinally; C20 grate. The left crosswing has a C20 grate, and higher storeys than the remainder. The walls of the main range have been raised to 2 full storeys, probably in the C19, and the roof is C19. Most of the interior is fully plastered, revealing little of the frame except at the service end. The service wing has a C19 bread oven to right of the stack, with cast iron door, but the rear half of the oven is closed off with brick and probably demolished beyond. An extensive collection of deeds from the 1670s, in the possession of the owner, will be deposited with Essex Record Office.
