Casements with cambered openings. Six-panelled door within a simple architrave and cornice on brackets.The east side is tile hung, the addition having a half-hipped tiled roof and a corner tapered stack.

On the attic landing the balustrade returns to the wall which has a flat "splat" newel post. Dining room has panelled walls above which is a particularly fine plastered frieze consisting of double-headed eagles alternating with a large leaf motif. Both eagles and leaves are linked by strapwork. At the junction of the wall and ceiling are a series of dentils with leaf (arthenian?) and petal enrichment. Above the fireplace is a large panel with three figures set in foliage and flowers, including roses, vine leaves and others. Above and below this panel are single rows of nailhead-type ornament and around the whole is a rose and thistle trail also with small dentils. A similar panel exists over the fireplace in the bedroom above the dining room. Front rooms retain chamfered axial beams. Some six panelled doors.
