26.4.57 Farleigh Wallop House
(formerly listed as
1731, and 1935. On an old site, a rebuilding of 1731, incorporating an earlier
structure burnt in 1661, with a reconstituted west front by H S Goodhart-Rendel. Two
storeys and attic and basement. The east (1731) front is symmetrical, with an angular
centrepiece, 2.3.2 windows. Hipped slate roofing, with 2 flat-roofed dormers on each
side and 2 on the diagonal faces of the octagonal pyramid roof of the centre; moulded
cornice. The main wall is of squared flint, the centrepiece of stone ( ) in fine
ashlar; stone dressings include flush quoins, architraves (the upper plain but moulded
in the centrepiece, the lower with cornice, keystone, and panel, with rusticated arches
in the centre) plinth, and carved coat of arms above the central French window. Sashes
in reveals. The west front has a tall projecting centrepiece, with the upper section
in stonework supporting a coat of arms; below is a flush pediment, a roundel, a band,
and a tall round-headed staircase window, the entrance now a square porch. On either
side are short wings, and further projecting wings, and detached outer piers, to
produce a symmetrical window pattern of 220.127.116.11.2.3.1. This newer work continues the
old elevation style, enriched by the closer proportion of the elements, the total
frontage being wider than the garden (east) front. Within, there is an imposing
octagonal room , on the axis with the entrance hall, and a small room with C17, panelling
and a stone fireplace, being a part, with very thick walls, of the earlier Jacobean
fabric. Staircases, door-frames and panelled doors, also survive from the 1731
(see Country Life September 1941).
