A House
SU 1868 5/313

1845-50. Architect Edward Blore. Red brick. Hipped slate roof. 3 storeys.
Continuous ashlar sill bands. 6 ranges of sashes with glazing bars in brick
"Gibbs" surrounds. 2 Italianate towers with modillioned cornices and arched
lights taking flues. Long and short brick quoins. Elaborate wooden oriels in
mid-C17 manner, added by Edwin H Crocker in the 1880's.
Like B House, it is remarkable for being so early an example of the revival of
C17 forms: like B House also its towers are the most conspicuous reminder of
its real date. Unlike B House it has a much shallower pitched roof, no modillioned
cornice, and no dormers, and their absence is also more typical of the 1840's
than the other features. Interior: both houses have remarkable central, top-lit
halls, lined by galleries with absolutely plain arcading filled in by iron railings.
C House, B House, The Museum Block, The Arcade, The Bradleian Buildings, The North
Block, the Porter's Lodge, gates and railings, the Chapel, and A House form a group.
