has rear lateral fireplace. C19 extensions include servants'
quarters at right angles in front of lower end, stair wing
rear of hall and pantry lean-to rear of lower end.
EXTERIOR: 2 storeys; 4-window range right of passage. Early

There is trellised porch with elliptically-arched doorway in

INTERIOR: has fine muntin and plank screens with diagonal
stops and shouldered arched doorways. There is an opening in
the screen, later mostly blocked, left of hall doorway. Hall
ceiling has intersecting chamfered beams with tongue stops.
Lower end has similar crossbeam right of fireplace and later
beam with similar but smaller detail left of fireplace; oven
behind left-hand jamb of fireplace and old straight-flight
staircase right of fireplace.
C19 scissor-truss roof structure except for 1 original jointed
cruck partly visible in the lower end near the junction with
the servants' quarters.
The later C19 external appearance of Pool Anthony Farmhouse
belies the considerable interest of the original house within.
