The left gable wall has similar mullioned windows on each floor, of 2 lights to the left and 3 to the right, all blocked except the upper right, and only those at ground floor with hoodmoulds (the lack of hoodmoulds to those at 1st floor suggesting that they were formerly protected by eaves on this side); an attic window, and datestones above and below this with raised lettering, the upper: I R 1663 O I and the lower: E E R 1663 Rear: the basement has a Tudor-arched doorway at the east end, and the hoodmould of a former cellar window in the centre; otherwise, the west portion has a doorway near the corner, and hoodmoulds over an altered window on each main floor, and the east portion has a rectangular 30-pane stairwindow and one small-paned sliding sash cross-window on each floor to the left.
