23.4.52 Fine fare)
Former town houses, now an office and shop. Circa 1730 of one build, the left
2 bays (Fine Fare) recently refaced with obstructive yellow stone disturbing the
coherence of the facade. Coursed and squared rubble stone with stone dressings
and a gabled slate roof with stone copings and a S stone stack with brick cap.
Three storeys and attic, 5 bays with the central bay having slight-projection.
Rusticated quoins to ends and central bay, moulded and eared architraves and large
keystones to windows on first floor. Plain moulded architraves to 2nd floor
windows but with brackets below sills and aprons above. Moulded stone cornice
with plain course above. Band below first floor windows has been breached by
the lengthening of the 2 windows to the right-hand section and the aprons above
the 2nd floor windows to the left-hand section have been omitted in the recent
refacing. One segmental headed dormer with 2-light casement, 12-pane sashes to
upper 2 floors. Central door has moulded doorcase with cinquepartite keystone
breaking into a pulvinated frieze, a pediment above and 2 bolection moulded panels
at fanlight level. C20 shop front windows to either side of door. Nos 11 and
12 as originally planned reflect the Gibbsian Baroque of nearby Ditchley Park
erected in the 1720s.
