House and modern shops. RCHM 77. Early C18 3-storeyed stuccoed timber-framed
front over cellars and having 3 gabled dormers in a Welsh slate roof. There
is an overhang at the lst floor and a heavy moulded modillioned cornice and
3 sash windows. Interior. RCHM page 166a. Includes C18 panelling in lst
and 2nd floor room. History. Known once as Hore's tenement. (Oxford History
Society LXVII 55, 60). In 1679 Elinor Sylvester "was burnt out and built
a new" and her fine on renewal of lease, reduced, (ib LXIX, 369). It is
not easy to say if the core of the present house is that of the 1679 building.
Bought by the University of Oxford in 1947.
