Central hall range of one storey and attic, 2-window range, has mid C19 outshut to front with flat stone arches over mid C19 double doors and C20 three-light casements: similar casements in gabled dormers. Right side wall has late C15 two-light round-headed window and cross window, and mid C17 one-bay extension. Left side wall has hood moulds over mid C17 chamfered stone-mullioned windows of 2-, 3- and 4-lights, mid C17 stone lintel with Vitruvian scroll over blocked door: rear of left wing, built c.1850, has reset C15 pointed moulded doorway and lateral stack. Rear wall has sashes. Interior: C13 chamber block to right has blocked oriel opening to rear and blocked first-floor solar doorway to right; C13 coupled-rafter roof of very slight scantling with C13 common rafters of poles; early C18 dog-leg with winders staircase with turned balusters; ground floor room has C17 panelling from Magdalen College installed here c.1850. Hall range: late C15 two-light hollow-chamfered stone-mullioned and round-headed window in front wall; screens passage to right. 5-bay hall roof has 2 queen-post trusses to right and one to left, and unusual scissor trusses to centre of former open hall; roof has trenched through-purlins and windbraces. Ceiling inserted in C17: mid C19 plasterwork on ground floor; mid C17 panelled cupboards on first floor; room to left, remodelled c.1661, has timber-framed partition walls and moulded stone fireplace with black and white chequer-work to inner walls and faded painted panels to overmantle. Parlour range to left: two late C15 trusses to front with cusped pinnacles and struts; other features are c.1661, namely stop-chamfered beams with heart-shaped stops on ground floor, open fireplace with stop-chamfered bressumer on ground floor and moulded stone fireplace on first floor. Subsidiary features: L-shaped C18 limestone rubble wall extends approximately 20 metres to right. History: the very rare and complete C13 roof is of extremely small timbers which may reflect lost vernacular traditions of non-permanent building with poles. (Brigadier F.R.L. Goadby and Standlake Local History Society, Standlake House Survey, 1983, No.56).
