Commentary
Built in 1914, the house was the home of William Morris, later Lord Nuffield, founder of Morris Motors.

Although he became a very wealthy man, Lord Nuffield lived with his wife, Lady Nuffield, in relatively simple, unostentatious surroundings.

On his death, Lord Nuffield bequeathed Nuffield Place to Nuffield College, Oxford, who recently sold the house to the National Trust.  The house, retaining most of the family’s furniture, including Lord Nuffield’s bedroom workshop, is now open to the public.
