Adjoining to the right is a 2-storey former coach house and stable, now mostly part of the house. At the left it has a wide moulded doorway with elliptical arch and keystone, now blocked and containing a smaller door. Above is a window which has an architrave with round head and keystone. To the right is a modern garage entrance. At the far right is one bay which has 2-light flat-faced mullioned windows. Inside, the right-hand front room has a bolection- moulded stone fireplace. In the left-hand rear wing an open-well stair rises to the attic and has barley-sugar balusters, moulded handrail, and square newels with ball finials. The C18th extension has a shouldered fireplace with moulded cornice mantel, and a pine stair with closed string and splat balusters. A 1st floor room is lined with raised and fielded panelling. The stone fireplace is flanked by fluted pilasters and surmounted by a small swan-necked pediment in stone. The roof over this part of the house has hardwood king post trusses of C18th type.
