LOWER HEYFORD CHURCH LANE
SP4824 (South side)
10/53 Heyford House
26/11/51 (Formerly listed as Rectory)
GV II

Rectory, now house. 1731, and 1867 by Charles Buckeridge incorporating earlier
elements. Coursed squared marlstone with ashlar dressings; Stonesfield-slate and
Welsh-slate roofs with stone stacks. Central-stair plan with added parallel
range to rear and rebuilt cross-wing. 2 storeys and one storey plus attic.
Regular 5-window front of C18 range has a plinth, plus ashlar storey bands
linked to the projecting keyblocks of the plain-architraved windows; most
windows have 12-pane sashes, including the central ground-floor window which was
converted from the main entrance in the C19. A plain parapet returns around the
hipped roof. The C19 range to rear also has a hipped roof, and the garden front
has large stone mullioned-and-transomed windows, including a canted bay window
with a pierced quatrefoil parapet. The cross-wing, to left of the main range,
which is on the site of the C16/C17 house, is lower with a stone-slate roof, and
is in similar mullioned style but with parapets to the main gables and to the
half dormers; a short projection to left has an open porch sheltering a large
re-used C16 plank door with a moulded wooden Tudor-arched frame. Interior: All
features and joinery are probably C19 except for some chimney breasts and a
bread oven in the cross-wing which may be part of the demolished range.
