Lower right-angled 2-storey extension of 2 builds, 3 bays, forming overall F-shape. Entrance to original house has been lost in later extensions; 2-, 3- and 4-light chamfered stone-mullioned windows under hoodmoulds. 1650 porch and left extension are in a similar style, the porch with a Tudor-arched doorway and the 2-, 3- and 4-light windows under continuous hoods which are carried around the side walls of the porch. Left extension has C20 door in stone architrave, the present front door to Greenthwaite Hall Farmhouse. Porch and extension have ornamented strapwork panels between floors.

The right part has C20 door in stone architrave, the present entrance to Greenthwaite Hall Cottage. The rear of the main house has a central stonework joint; the left part is the earlier house and the right part the 1650 extension. Both parts have similar 2- and 3-light chamfered stone-mullioned windows, one on the left now a C20 doorway, all under hoodmoulds. Left return wall has blocked small chamfered-surround windows. Right return wall has upper-floor blocked 2-light windows. Interior of the oldest part has in its principal room a large C16 arched stone fireplace and beamed ceiling.
