The house stands between 2 old railways, which were used less and less when the new road between Petham and Waltham was built in the mid-18th century. These roads are now only public footpaths leading to the church in Waltham and the village itself. Upper Ansdore was probably a first floor hall house. In rural areas, this form of house was favoured for defence purposes. Generally, they are not large. The ground floor was probably used as storerooms or as subsidiary living accommodation. Above the first floor is a hall of 2 bays, originally open to the roof, with a single bay solar adjoining, which was always sealed, providing an attic. 200 years later, in the 16th century, a chimney was built in what was called the screen's passage. This chimney, built of Tudor bricks, is large by today's standards but it allowed 2 fireplaces on the first floor and 2 on the ground floor, so that all rooms could be heated.
