4/108 Pond Farmhouse
- II

Farmhouse, mid C17. Coursed rubble walls with gable-ended, slate
roof with end brick stacks. Symmetrical. 2 storeys and attic, 5
bays, 3-light hollow chamfered stone mullioned windows in ogee
moulded surrounds. Central doorway with moulded 4-centred arch in
square surround. C19, panelled double door. The ground floor
windows have a continuous, returned, hood mould/string course which
is stepped up over the door. The rear facade has similar fenestration
but each window has a separate returned label. Central doorway appears
to be of Portland stone and has a 4-centred, moulded head with
continuous jambs in a square surround. West end wall has 2-light
mullioned window inserted in a former doorway. C19/C20 stone mullioned
window in, east end wall. Internally there are stone, hollow chamfer
and ogee moulded, 4-centred arch fireplaces with continuous jambs in
square surrounds. An upstairs west fireplace is of stone with a
plain chamfered 4-centre head with continuous jambs. There are medium
stop-chamfered ceiling beams. Collar-beam roof with original timbers
possibly reset. Most other interior features are modern but it seems
likely that the house originally has a 4 room plan with a central cross
passage flanked by 2 unheated service rooms, an expensive and fairly
rare way of achieving a symmetrical facade whilst retaining a cross
