SP2411-2511; SP2512(Enlargement) No 174 (Glenthorne
6/164; 7/164 House) (previously
12.9.55 listed as Glenthorne)
House. C14 remodelled C17 with perhaps mid-C19 front in C18 style
(attributed to Christopher Kempster). Freestone front with plain ashlar
raised quoins, otherwise rubble, Cotswold stone roofs, ashlar end
chimneys. Front: 2 storeys with parapet, stands on plinth. 3 bays, with parapet, stands on plinth. 3 bays,
outer paired, glazing-bar sashes in raised flat surrounds with cock-beads
and keystones, simple offset courses as cornice. Central 4-panel door
with stone brackets to flat hood. Gabled stair-turret adjacent to south
gable return and lower 1- and 2- storey mullion windowed extensions.
Internal evidence of former double gabled frontage. Interior: late C14
small pointed doorway axial with entrance, wave moulding; late mediaeval
fireplace with moulded corbels to simple hood; bressumer on North side
moulded and has traces of painted decoration; double-chamfered floor
joists; newel stair in turret; remains of Jacobean panelling on 1st floor
landing. The Kempster attribution is unlikely. As late as 1761 still an
Inn (The Star Inn); cobbles found below right-hand bay suggest a coach-
entry there (ex.inf R Moody).
