In its present form, the western range of Green Court south of the gatehouse is of two storeys with utilisation attic space over (recently refurbished). To Green Court, the elevation is of Kentish ragstone, crenellated, with uniform fenestration of three-light windows under four-centred heads, set between doorways to the north, centre and south of the elevation. A straight joint towards the southern end of the elevation suggests that the range was originally built on a somewhat reduced plan. Much of the current layout dates to the Phase 4A remodelling of Knole, when the range was extended southwards the shaped gables introduced o the west elevation, the brick stacks constructed (each of six flues serving fireplaces at ground, first and attic level) and the fenestration renewed throughout. Three lead rainwater hoppers and down-pipes are inscribed TD (Thomas Dorset) and bear the date 1607. Internally, though much obscured by modern partitioning, it is possible to define in broad terms the former extent of a series of apartments at both ground and first levels.
