Wing: front room has large raised-and-fielded panelling with dado rail and casement-moulded plaster cornice and spine-bean; rear room has corner fireplace and large spine-beam supported on wooden corbel to oak-post, perhaps the only indicator of an earlier timber-framed house; upper chamber has king-post truss with 12 ¨V" struts, braced to ridge. 3rd cell has large arched fireplace.
