The first floor of the house consists of a series of halls, much like the ground floor, and many windows covered with mashrabiyas, wooden hooks used to allow women to view the garden and street. These mashrabiyas were also used for cooling pottery tiles. The minaret at beit el sehemy is also unique in its structure.

The interior of the Bayt el Sehemy house is also worth visiting. This elegant 18th-century building is divided into parts for men and women. Its dome is decorated with small pierced patterns. The Qubba of Jamal al-Din, another mausoleum of a Suhaymi, was built next door to the House of El Khurazati.
