Listing Text

(North Side)
No 38
SP 5106 SW 8/562 12.1.54.
House. RCHM 145. C17 in origin. 3-storeyed stuccoed rubble and timber-
framed with cellars, an overhang at 1st and 2nd floors and 2 gables. There
is a red tile roof. In the ground floor is a modern double sash window and
a plain doorway. In the 1st floor are 2 C18 sash windows in moulded wood
frames and in the 2nd floor are 2 modern 3-light casement windows. The back
remains in its original rubble with a stone slate roof and has 2 gables rising
at eaves level, one lighting the staircase and the other an attic room; between
them and below the eaves is an original single-light moulded stone framed
window. Interior: RCHM p 174 a. Includes some C17 panelling the design
of which is thought to be unique in Oxford; it "has mitred mouldings at the
meeting of the styles and rails of the panels, which are sunk; within these
are lesser panels which are raised and moulded. The top surface of each rail
is splayed only, not moulded, a survival of an earlier practice. This in
the only example of this particular type of transitional panelling found
in an old house in the City. That in No 28 Holywell is somewhat later in
date". (Bunney and Pearce). There is a winding oak staircase. History.
This and No 39 probably forms the house "lately built" in 1690. See "Hosp
of St John. Oxf Hist Soc II, 233 and III, 375.

Nos 36 to 39 (consec) form a group.
