The second floor windows are 6-pane sashes with triangular lintels on end modillions and with accentuated keyblocks. The central doorway has a pediment on console-brackets containing a shield with the arms of the Berkeley family upon it; there is a multi-paned window now replacing the former door, with a moulded architrave. The older structure is visible in the rear and north side elevations; close-set vertical studding, 2 rows from sill to wall- plate with long straight braces in lower corners; gable ends have carved barge- boards and pendants; north gable end has swept upper corner braces and exposed queen strut truss revealing double purlin roof structure. Interior Much altered Late C16 staircase survives to rear of central range, rising in 3 flights to first floor around an open well.
