10/21 Court Farmhouse

Farmhouse. Late C17, probably altered early C19. Limestone and marlstone rubble
with marlstone-ashlar dressings; Stonesfield-slate roof with marlstone-ashlar
stacks. L-plan. 2 storeys plus attic and one storey plus attic. Front has to
right, gable end of higher wing, containing at ground floor the entrance in a
C19 ashlar gabled porch, a blocked keystone doorway and mullioned window, and a
stepped buttress; on the upper floors are 2-light stone-mullioned windows with
labels, and there is a second-floor storey band. To left, the lower range has a
further gable and leaded stone-mullioned windows of 2 and 3 lights. The lower
range extends further to left, and there is an outshut to right of the higher
range extending to the full depth of the rear wing. There are further leaded
mullioned windows, with labels, in the left range gable wall and at the rear of
2, 3 and 4 lights. The secondary entrance, to rear of the lower range, has a
segmental keyblock arch below a label. Projecting to extreme left of the front
is a single-storey kitchen wing in similar style, with massive ashlar stack on
the front gable. Its roof has been partly dismantled but it remains linked to
the lower range by a segmental archway. Interior not inspected. The porch is
noted as having been brought from a house in the "Wilderness" in the 1850's. The
Wilderness is a garden to Great Tew House which replaced a part of the village
demolished c.1830.
