At first floor level, under the eaves, there is a 2-light window with a solid frame with glazing rebates. The top of the east gable end is now corrugated iron, but was formerly a half-hipped roof. There are two first floor timber windows. To the north there is a 19th century 3- light window with glazing bars and glazing rebates. The south window is 20th century. The rear has a 2-light ground floor window in a solid frame with hangers for shutters. Above there is a blocking of an unusually wide opening.
