Recessed-chamfered mullion windows throughout, on ground floor (left to right): of 5,4,1,6,1 and 5 lights; a similar pattern to first floor but of 4 lights far left; and four 3-light windows light attic storey. Continuous hoodmould to ground floor, and a dripmould to first floor - both carried around east return and rear.

Rear wall to left of projecting wing: left - added C19 projecting bay; single-light window to right; rear wall to right of projecting wing: large C19 projecting bay to right, 4- and 2-light windows to left. Main range, right return: 3 tiers of windows - 6-light with king mullion, 5 light above, and attic window of 4 stepped lights. Interior: the house is notable for the fine original fireplaces and timberwork. First floor as well as ground floor main rooms (hall and 2 parlours) were heated, and the surviving timberwork includes: partitions of post and panel construction, panelling to small room to left of entrance hall and in upper rooms (concealed by wallpaper), original board doors, some with carved mouldings; 2 sets of stairs: a main set of 2 straight flights with slender moulded balusters in the rear wing, and a straight flight behind the kitchen (far left) with balusters of a more heavily-moulded form. The remains of a carved frieze survives on these stairs. Large chamfered beams support floors, and the roof is carried by 5 large upper cruck trusses, the blades set into the walls and each pair linked by a tenoned collar allowing maximum headroom to former storage or sleeping accommodation in the attic.
