6/171 Patcombe Farmhouse including chimney stack GV adjoining south east

II*

Bailiffs house in landscaped park. Probably 1771 by John Johnson for Sir Charles Kemeys Tynte of Halswell House, Goathurst(qv) Red brick in Flemish bond. Pantile hipped roof.

Plan: Symmetrical 2-room rectangular plan classical style building with a central stack at the front of which is an integral colonaded portico giving individual access to each room. The 2 rooms also have doorways at the back giving into a lobby with a back door and a staircase behind the central stack.

Exterior: 2 storeys. Symmetrical 3-bay north front with a brick modillion eaves cornice and string with 2 brick console brackets either side of a small central pedimented gable with a circular window. Central stone portico in form of a bowed Roman Doric colonade flanked by windows in large round headed recess with a stringcourse at impost level. The stringcourse continues on the right hand return at impost level of the 3-bay blind arcade which has a rectangular panel above each arch and a window in the centre. The modillion eaves cornice continues around the west side and at the rear (South) but the east side facing the bank is plain. There is a length of brick retaining wall adjoining at the back built into which is a stack with 3 flues and a large symmetrical arch fireplace (outside the house).

Interior: Farm animals have had access to the interior, the doors and chimneypieces are missing, the balustrade to the winder staircase has gone but the door frames and some of the panelled window shutters remain as well as the wall plaster.

Historical note: Patcombe Farmhouse was built as the bailiffs house, was part of Sir Charles Kemeys Tynte's landscaping of Halswell and might have been the "Temple of Pan in the Gardens of Sir Charles Kemeys ... at Halswell" exhibited by John Johnson at the Society of Artists in 1778.
