South elevation raised on terrace with brick retaining wall with stone copings is of 11 bays (4-3-4) again with pedimented centre piece, the central bay of which is given further expression by stone pilasters and an open pediment to each window case. Shield of arms in gable. Internal detail spans a range of styles from the original house through to the major alterations of 1885. As an original survival, the staircase is notable, with moulded rail capped by ramified urns above the newels and slim turned balusters. It has however been re-arranged to form a straight flight. Raised and fielded panelling throughout may also be original work, but plaster ceilings which are largely heavy floral swags forming panels, though with some lighter motifs including strap work and pendants in one principal upper room is largely of 1885. Other detailing seems also to belong to this period, but some fireplaces are of the 18th century, and grisaille panels over some upper doorways are of the later C18. The entrance hall is completely of 1885 in a Tudor style with panelled ceilings and stone fireplace with carved wood over mantle. In the cellar are two doors removed from Newgate Prison cells in 1903. Stable courtyard to north of house is almost entirely of 1885 in a Dutch style with principal range to the north articulated by pilasters with a central shaped Dutch gable.
