It is end on to the road, and is faced with red brick, partly cemented, and appears to be 18th century. It is however an ancient timbered house, and inside may be seen timber-framing, which appears to be 14th century. This can best be seen inside the front door on the upper side of the house, where part of the outside of the old house may be seen. In the garden, on the lower side is an old well and windlass, which is a feature worth preserving. Elham Study  
Windlass - noun: a winch for lifting a bucket in a well.
