CLANFIELD BLACK BOURTON ROAD SP 2802-2902 (west side) 7/17 Chestlion Farmhouse


Farmhouse. Late C17 possibly incorporating parts of an early C14 building; later additions and alterations. Roughly coursed limestone rubble with alternating angle quoins and ashlar dressings; hipped stone slate roof. Central through-passage plan. 3 storeys on chamfered plinth. 3-window front; chamfered mullion window with leaded lights and dripstones, of 2-lights to second floor directly below eaves, of 3-lights to first floor and to left of central entrance and of 4-lights to right. Mid-C19 Gothic-traceried panelled door in chamfered surround with rectangular overlight and dripstone. Rectangular projection to right has 2-light mullion window with drip-stone to ground floor and coping resembling an integral stack to top. Tiny reused blind trefoil-headed lancet in right wall. Left return of main range has integral lateral stack with shaft rebuilt in C20 brown brick and infilled 2-light chamfered mullion window with dripstone directly below. 3 single-light windows with drip-stones to left corner, one on each floor, those to first and second floors infilled. Rear. Internal stack in roof slope to right has 2 attached shafts with dripstones and capping. Full-length 2-storey lean-to below on chamfered plinth has three 3-light mullion windows, centre and right lights of middle one infilled, to first floor and mullion windows with dripstones to ground floor, of 4-lights to left and of 3-lights to right of central doorway. This is on line of through passage and has half-glazed door with rectangular overlight and dripstone. 3-light mullion window on first floor to right side of lean-to. Left side has lean-to (apparently of same build) continuing along right return of main range. Small gabled projection to left corner (viewed from rear) houses bread oven. Interior: chamfered ceiling beams to ground and first floor rooms. Moulded segmental-arched fireplace to back wall of room to right of entrance and chamfered stone fireplace to corresponding room above. C18 roll-moulded fireplace surround in room to left of entrance. Winder staircase off central passage. Stone flag floors; cellar below left part of house. Rectangular projection to front has blind single-splayed window on line of external trefoil-headed lancet and a triple hollow-moulded pointed arch-way with hoodmould leading into room behind. The doorway looks early C14 but as the surrounding walls are rendered it is difficult to tell whether or not it is in situ. (Buildings of England: Oxfordshire: p.546) (2309)
