Windows have cambered head linings with C19 sashes with vertical glazing bars only. 1st floor central window has sun fireplaque.

Rear elevation has central C19 2 storey extension, stuccoed with incised lines to represent masonry with verniculated keystones and 1 mask keystone. Interior has dado panelling and moulded plastic ceiling to hall. The lounge retains C18 butterfly and H-hinges to the window shutters and the dining room has some original sash frames cut across to convert to later C19 sashes. 1st floor retains early C18 staircase balustrading (the lower part of the staircase is C19), 4 early C18 2 panelled doors and a wooden fire surround with corner urns and central patera with swags. Behind the doorcase is a date of 1639 but the existing building appears no earlier than the early C18. The building was formerly the dower house to Oldfield Lawn. The alterations were made for Major General Oldfield who had 22 children.
