Various 4- and 5-light casement windows, with arched heads to lights and leaded panes in intersecting hexagonals and diamonds; some of the ground-floor windows have transomes, and there is one square bay window. 2- storey projecting porch, with a 5-light upper window and ai small 2-light diamond-leaded fixed window on each side of the doorway. Wide segmental arch to doorway, with triangular pediment and dentil cornice above, continued as a hood-mould over the windows. Ledged and battened door with 2 leaves, and applied pilaster strips. Linked to the north side of the house is a small 2- storey early C20 circular tower by Louis Sarel (see also Spexhall Manor and Fairstead Farmhouse, Spexhall) with a conical plaintiled roof surmounted by a square open belfry containing one bell; both storeys have single-light fixed windows with diamond-leaded panes. Early C20 timbered and panelled interior: 2 bays of the original C17 house, with plain exposed ceiling-joists are visible. The ground floor windows on the porch and the dentil details probably also be Sarel.
