3/151 Pound Farmhouse 16.10.81 (formerly listed as Pound Farm Cottages, Nos. 1, 2 and 3)

- II

Wrongly shown on OS map as Pound Farm Cottages. House. Circa 1590, extended in C17, C18 and C20. Timber framed, plastered, roofed with handmade red plain tiles. 4 bays facing SE, with external stack at left end and axial stack in second bay from right end, forming a lobby-entrance. C17 wing behind internal stack, and C18 closet extension in rear right angle. C20 extension to right of main range, forming a symmetrical elevation. 2 storeys (with attics originally, now disused). 4-window range of C20 casements. C20 door at front of C20 gabled porch. Jowled posts, straight and arched bracing trenched inside studding. The right ground-floor room has a wood-burning hearth with chamfered jambs and depressed arch, stripped to the brick and repaired; a chamfered axial beam scarfed in 2 places (early at the left end, with lamb's tongue stops and forelocks, modern at the right end); plain joists of vertical section. The middle ground-floor room has a wide wood-burning hearth of 0.33 metre brickwork with replaced mantel beam and original seat recess to right; chamfered axial beam with lamb's tongue stops and plain joists of vertical section; at front, one complete original window of early glazed type with ovolo-moulded jambs and mullion, and mortices for 2 diamond saddle bars, and another similar window of which the mullion is missing, both blocked externally. The left ground floor room has a wide wood-burning hearth of 0.33 metre brickwork with blocked aperture for former bread oven, and a chamfered axial beam with step stops at one end, probably re-used. The right first-floor room has in the front wall 2 original windows,each with moulded jambs and mullion; unlike those on the ground floor, these are of ovolo section with concave glazing fillets; both are blocked externally. In the same room, hearth with chamfered jambs and 4-centred arch, retaining original plaster. The middle first-floor room has a wood-burning hearth with 0.23 metre jambs; the rear of the stack is repaired. The left first-floor room has in the rear wall a complete unglazed window with 2 diamond mullions. Clasped purlin roof with shallow arched wind-bracing; unglazed window with mortices for one diamond mullion in right gable, blocked externally; some original wattle and daub in internal wall. It is likely that originally there were 2 oriel windows on each floor, each with a small window to each side, but only 4 of the small windows have survived, with residual evidence of the sills of the oriels. Face-halved and bladed scarfs in wallplates. The rear wing has primary straight bracing with substantial studding; the closet extension has thin primary bracing and studding. This house has undergone substantial repair and renovation in the period 1982-6.
