Country house. 1768 by Samuel Dowbiggin for Charles Peers. Brick in Flemish bond with limestone ashlar dressings; 3 storeys plus basement. Symmetrical 3-window front has an ashlar plinth, a ground-floor sill band and a first-floor storey band. The deep entablature breaks forward slightly in the centre over 2 pairs of Ionic pilasters, which rise from the storey band, and has a triangular pediment containing the Peers arms. The entablature stops just short of the angles where breaks are marked by rusticated quoins rising from the sill band. The 12-pane sashes (6-pane at second floor) have moulded architraves and, at first floor, a central triangular pediment with straight cornices in the outer bays. The stone porch with 2 Greek Doric columns in antis is of c.1820. The 3-window return walls have pairs of 2-storey canted bay windows with similar sashes; to left the bays are now linked, to right the ground-floor windows have been covered. The plain 5-window garden front has a central stone doorway above a flight of steps. 3 lead hopper heads are inscribed "CP 1768". The hipped roof is concealed behind a plain parapet which replaced a balustrade. Interior: bow-ended 3-storey stair hall has a sweeping canilevered staircase with turned balusters and is lit by a glazed dome. Drawing room has canted ends and a white marble fireplace with Doric columns and a central carved panel. (V.C.H.: Oxfordshire, Vol.VII, p.7; A.
