The rear elevation is a complex of different additions, the main feature being a three-storeyed bow of three windows, of similar details to the front: the north wing has two gables and a large conservatory, the south has a gable and a hip of unequal projection: single storeyed flat roofed small block stands forward of these and there is a deep recess immediately south of the bow. At each end of the front, walls extend to enclose a forecourt, which is marked by a low brick wall, with stone capping surmounted by continuous wrought-iron rails, linking the flank walls to the porch.
