TOOT BALDON SP5600 8/174 Court House


Substantial house. C16, extended mid C19. Coursed limestone rubble with ashlar quoins; old plain-tile roof with brick and stone stacks. Gable-fronted plan of 2 parallel ranges. 2 storeys. Double-gabled 2-window front has an arched doorway, to right of centre, tripartite sashes to left at ground and first floors, and margin-light sashes to right. The right gable has 2 small stone stacks, set diagonally. There is a small stone-coped false gable between the main gables, and a datestone on the left gable inscribed "W.FRUIN/1841". The rear part of the left range is a 3-window Cl6 house, with heavy chamfered plinth, which has, at first floor, sashes flanking a stone-arched window with recessed spandrels and, at ground floor, has a 6-panel door set beneath a stone label and a further sash. The furthermost bay shows signs of first-floor timber framing having been replaced on both sides, and the rear gable wall has a large projecting chimney with sloping weatherings. The right range has a 3-window garden front with further margin-light sashes, those at first floor with gables. Interior: some intersecting chamfered beams. The right range is slightly later than the extension of the left range and the datestone may refer to it. (V.C.H.: Oxfordshire, Vol.V, p.48).
