TQ 64 SE PADDOCK WOOD MAIDSTONE ROAD

6/335 Mascalls Pound

GV II

House. Circa mid/late C17. Framed construction, the front elevation underbuilt in Flemish bond brick on the ground floor, the first floor tile- hung; peg-tile roofs; brick stacks.

Plan: The house faces approximately east, slightly set back from the road. The main block is a 2-room lobby entrance plan with back-to-back fireplaces in an axial stack. Rear right (north west) wing at right angles is circa late C17 and originally unheated, the ground floor used as a dairy in living memory. The rear left outshut has a stack with a lintel dated 1684. The outshut may be contemporary with the main block but could be later.

Exterior: 2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-bay front elevation, the roof half-hipped at ends. Course of brick corbelling at first floor level. Central C18 front door with fielded panels and a gabled porch hood on shaped brackets. 3-light late C17/early C18 iron framed casements with square leaded panes and good window furniture, similar 2-light window over the front door. The rear right wing has a roof half-hipped at the rear (west) end with a moulded fascia under the eaves of the hip. C20 stack added on the right (north) side of the wing; C20 French window in west end and a C20 bay window. Rear centre wing, probably a C19 raising of the outshut. C20 rear windows including a large hipped roof dormer to the outshut.

Interior: The left hand room in the main range has exposed cross and axial beams and joists. Open fireplace with brick jambs, an oak lintel and a particularly interesting iron contraption, fixed to the fireback, for suspending a cooking pot over the fire. The arrangement involves a pivot, so that the mechanism can be turned back flush with the fireback, and a ratchet for adjusting the height of suspension. The right hand room has a single exposed axial beam. The outshut fireplace has an oak lintel dated 1684 and formerly had a bread oven. C17 door of overlapping planks leads down to the cellar, which has a floor laid with large bricks. The ground floor of the rear wing has a crossbeam with short curved braces from the wallposts. Exposed ceiling carpentry to the first floor rooms. The rear wall framing survives to sole plate level, the wallposts with formed jowls.

Roof: Apex not accessible at time of survey (1989). The roof is clasped purlin design, both over the main range and rear wing.
