BONDLEIGH SS 60 SE 6/2 Bondleigh Wood Farmhouse II Farmhouse. Probably C16 origins with C17 modifications and C19 addition. Rendered cob walls. Hipped thatched roof. 2 rendered stacks - one axial and one at the left-hand end. Plan: originally 3 room-and-through-passage, lower end to the left. Lack of access to the roof makes it uncertain whether the house originally had an open hall, if so it was modernised and ceiled in the C17. Hall stack backs onto passage, lower and inner rooms both originally unheated and the small size of the inner room suggests it has always been used for secondary service purposes. An end stack was added to the lower room in circa early C18. In the C19 an outbuilding was added at the end of the inner room. Exterior: 2 storeys. Long asymmetrical 5 window front of C19 and C20 wooden casements, 1, 2 and 3 lights, some with small panes. To left of centre is passage doorway with C19 plank door. C20 part glazed door at right-hand end into former outbuilding. C20 leanto in front of left-hand end. Interior: Hall has chamfered cross beams with hollow step stops. At its higher end is plank and muntin screen dividing it from inner room, with mason's mitre's and high hollow step stops above a bench. At the lower side of the passage there is also some form of plank partition but it is only partially exposed. The lower room has chamfered cross beams with hollow step stops. It has a small open fireplace with plain wooden lintel and oven. Roof not entirely accessibly at time of survey but the feet of 2 early trusses are visible over the hall on the 1st floor with threaded purlins and it is possible that they may be medieval.
