Stephen Junior was responsible for a number of buildings around Seaview, Bembridge and Ryde – including Nettlestone ‘College Cottages’ which his father had built; also the south chapel and south aisle of St Peter’s Church, Seaview as a memorial to the men of the village who had fallen in WW1.

After WW2, Pondwell House fell into a serious state of decay and was demolished and the estate around Gregory Avenue covers the area.
