At the rear and to the side of the house is a kitchen wing also of grey brick but the inside shows evidence of an earlier building of clunch. At the rear and forming part of the grey brick boundary wall is a clairvoyee of wrought iron railings, in line with the rear doorway and morning-room window. Inside the house has a paved hall and a cut string principal staircase with curtail, scrolled ends, square balusters and a mahogany rail. There are opposing front and rear entries. Two ground floor rooms have marble fireplaces and plaster cornice mouldings, all contemporary with the house.
