The service wing has C20 fenestration on the inner (south-eastern) side, late C19 horned sashes (2/8 panes) on the rear end over exposed footings of large well-dressed footings of red conglomerate stone, and on the outer side (recessed a little from the front block) a collection of early C19, late C19 and C20 casements including a large sash to the stair landing which has an intersecting Gothic pattern of glazing bars at the top. and others with lattice pattern of glazing bars. The door on this side is C19 and panelled with an overlight of unusually small rectangular panes. Interior. Although the stair balusters have been replaced most of the joinery detail is original. The doors and window shutters are panelled with similar patterns of applied strips. The entrance hall has rounded corners, each containing a round- headed niche with marble shelf. The rear block has some late C17 - early C18 hand- pointed Delft tiles set into the walls. Roof throughout of C19 king post trusses.
