House. Dated 1907, by Levi Dore, incorporating a probably C17 core. Cement

storeys. Modillion eaves cornice and moulded gutter, low parapeted gable ends
with stone copings and rendered integral end stacks with modillion cornices and
weatherings. Three bays, the left-hand one canted forwards; 2-light wooden
casements with bracketed panelled cills and flanking tapered fluted pilasters
with scrolled brackets; triangular pediments to ground-floor windows with
copings and globe finials. Oval datestones in outer gables and oval name-stone
in centrai gable. Central C20 six-panelled door. Three-bay casement-rendered
porch consisting of square piers, fluted pilasters with bases, fluted capitals
and scrolled brackets, elliptical arches with panelled intrados and spandrels,
moulded cornice and balustrade with drop balusters, panelled square dies with
pear-shaped finials and moulded rail. Richly-ornamented plaster vault within

encaustic tile floor. Levi Dore was one of two brothers, local builders and
craftsmen. Levi was the architect of the village war memorial (q.v.) and is said
(occupier of Inglenook - March 1987) to have worked on the restoration of
Burford Priory. The cant of the left-hand bay of Inglenook is evidence of the
earlier core of the building, said to have been 2 cottages. The entrance
formerly consisted of 2 separate doors flanking a central window, replaced by
the present arrangement in the late C20.
