Central door opening to west elevation, paired 2-panelled doors, gabled hood on consoles. Interior virtually completely re-fitted late C18, including doors and windows shutters, but 2 early fireplaces in stone surrounds with 4-centred heads, elaborate moulding; similar fireplace to second floor, further fireplaces probably remain to be uncovered.
