SP2412-2512 Lower Upton Farmhouse
5/218 (Previously listed as
12.9.55 part of Upton Farm House
and Five Barns)
Farmhouse. Looks early C18 but with C16 and C17 features incorporated;
restored early C19 and probably later. Rubble with Cotswold stone roofs.
2 storeys and attic, cellar under south part. 3 gables to west, the
central one hipped over large rounded stair turret, to left a chimney.
Irregular fenestration, casements mostly with wood casements. Long
single-storey range at right-angles to west. The rear (east) dominated by
the paired square stacks on gable to south; here the house is 3-storeyed,
gable with chimneys to left, 2 windows, C19 sashes, to right. Return to
north has a range of 3-light mullion windows with drips (replaced on
ground floor by a glazing-bar sash window). Interior: Main range has
intersecting chamfered beams, a spiral stair, and a large open fireplace
with wooden bressummer and a continuous chamfer. West range incorporates
a 3½-bay C16 structure, probably originally a 1½ bay open hall with
smoke bay and a 2-bay 2-storied section, parts of the floor structure of
which survive. The central truss is framed into a tiebeam with early
infill but the mid-unit trusses have curved feet and 2 collars, morticed
for queen struts: Trenches, purlins survive, but rafters and ridge have
been renewed. This range may have been part of Upton Mill, mentioned in
BOE: Oxfordshire; ex.inf. Michael Laithwaite.
