5/131 Milton Lodge and Wyverns and
18/07/63 attached walls
(Formerly listed as The Limes)


Large farmhouse, now houses. Early C18. Coursed squared limestone rubble with
ashlar dressings; old plain-tile roof and stone stacks, L-plan. 2 storeys plus
attics. Symmetrical 5-window front has a plain parapet on a moulded band and a
plain storey band. Central doorway with 6-panel door is flanked by Tuscan
pilasters carrying a segmental pediment with keyblock, now partly hidden by
later stone canopy with large triangular pediment on Tuscan columns. 4 early
sashes with heavy glazing bars survive at first floor, the centre window being
blind. All windows have a roll mould to sides and head. Parapets ramp up to
gable stacks, and also from the rear to stacks on the gables of the rear roof
span. The centre of both gable walls is recessed with pairs of tall windows to 3
floors. On the left an early sash survives. The roof has a central lead flat.
The long 2-storey rear wing has sashes on both sides with flat keyblock arches
and is now a separate dwelling (Wyverns). It has some early sashes and is
further extended by a lower range. Both ranges have double-span roofs and brick
stacks. Interior of Milton Lodge: C17 panelling, probably re-used; wide early
C18 dogleg stair, rising to attics, with closed string and turned balusters;
re-used C17 panelled doors in attics; butt-purlin roofs. Interior of Wyverns:
Large open fireplace. Flanking walls to forecourt are of rubble with angled
brick copings and terminate in plain ashlar piers with flat caps. (V.C.H.:
Oxfordshire, Vol.VII, p.l18; Buildings of England: Oxfordshire, p.623).
