8/172 Maunds Farmhouse

Farmhouse incorporating parts of a manor house, now house, Probably rebuilt
early C17, incorporating late-C12 and possibly later medieval features, and
altered C18/earIy C19. Coursed squared marlstone with wooden lintels plus ashlar
plinth and quoins; Stonesfield-slate roof with stone-and-brick stacks. L plan in
2 or 3 builds. 2 storeys. Left bay of 4-window front has a higher ridge and has
3-light casements to both floors, the upper with splayed mullions and leaded
glazing. Central section has a symmetrical 3-window arrangement (probably a C18
re-modelling) with a 6-panel door flanked by renewed casements, but with 2-light
early-C18 casements at first floor; to extreme right of it are traces of a
blocked doorway. Steep-pitched roof, with stacks flanking the middle section,
continues over blind bay to right and returns to a 2-window rear wing with a
fine ashlar gable stack. Wing retains some leaded casements, 3 at first floor
with oak splayed mullions and stop-chamfered lintels. Rear wall of main range,
which may be medieval, is partly obscured by a tall C19 brick wing, but has 4
old oak-framed casements, one in the blocked doorway of a former through passage
and another in part of a tall narrow opening which may be a hall window.
Interior: left section has a large stop-chamfered spine beam and heavy square
joists with face tenons and soffit spurs. Middle section has massive
intersecting chamfered beams and a very wide inglenook fireplace with a cambered
chamfered bressumer, the chamfer returning down ashlar jambs, and with a rubble
relieving arch. The wall separating the central section from the right section
is pierced by two adjoining round-arched doorways of c.1200, with moulded
imposts and chamfers terminating in decorative stops, which opened from a former
through passage: the doors are of unequal size, and are probably 2 of the 3
service doors of a large Cl2 manor house, the service end of which partly
survives in the right bay and rear wing. The present left, middle and right
sections of the house may correspond to the chamber block, hall, and service
range of a later hall house. The latter range formerly extended further to rear,
in the ruins of which is a large C17 open fireplace. The manor house was
probably that of Warin FitzGerald who succeeded to a third share of the manor of
Deddington in 1190. (Information from Dr. John Blair.)
