Circa mid C17, an L-plan wing was added to front left; this contained a room at the upper end of the hall, and a second room, probably a parlour, projecting as a front wing, heated from a front gable end stack.

At first floor, there is a small closet leading off the front room of the rear wing. Circa early - mid C19, the room added at the upper end of the hall was remodelled as a stair hall with an open-well stair. At about the same time, an addition was made at the rear of the rear wing, in a n L-plan, enclosing a small rear service courtyard; this is of one-room plan, heated from a stack at the right end, and has a single storey range of sheds attached at the right end.
