This house appears to contain some of the main framework of a 15th century house, but it was largely rebuilt around 1620, and has been much restored, and the porch added in recent years. Tile house must have presented an appearance something like the Abbot's fireside, with elaborately carved brackets beneath the eaves and the overhang of the first floor. One of these still remains on the right hand lower corner, and another towards the rear of the north end, while mortises on each side of all the main windows show where the other had been. The room on the left of the main doorway has oak panelling, and a very fine carved overmantel of the 1620 period. Old cellars remain beneath this room. Elham Study
