stops and shouldered arched doorways. There is an opening in

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

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.
