Again, the wooden flooring is greenheart as are the rafters. The rear patio is the roof of the ground floor bedroom and would need demolishing.
The window openings in both buildings are security grills with wooden shutters. The back door to the main house is a wooden stable door and at the front leading onto the veranda are double wooden doors. Both bedrooms also have double wooden doors.

There are two grass covered driveways which are very overgrown.
