SS 60 SW
5/151 Middle Trecott
House, probably originally farmhouse. Likely to be approximately early C16 with
early C17 alterations or early C17, C19 and C20 additions. Rendered cob walls.
Thatch roof gabled to left end hipped to right. Axial granite ashlar stack offset
from the ridge with a tapering cap.
Plan: originally 3-room-and-through-passage plan with lower end to the right now
reduced in height and partly rebuilt. Hall stack backs onto the passage but this
and the hall ceiling may be insertions into an open hall which originally had a
central hearth - this however cannot be proved without access to the roof space.
C19 and C20 1 storey additions at rear. It is unclear when the lower end was partly
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 2 window front of 1- and 2-light mid-late C20
leaded pane casements. C20 gabled open-fronted porch towards right-hand end with
C19 plank and glazed door behind to passage. Leanto against right-hand end and
outshut along rear wall.
Interior: hall has fireplace which has chamfered wooden lintel with diagonal-cut
stops and roughly chamfered granite jambs. Cloam oven in right-hand side.
Chamfered axial ceiling beam and 2 half beams with hollow step stops, joists have
bead-moulding to edges. The back of the fireplace, facing the passage, is of
granite ashlar. In the passage there are 2 re-used chamfered ceiling beams with
square mortices in their soffits. To the rear of the stack is a section of plank
and muntin screen with straight-cut stops.
Roof: over the hall is a face-pegged jointed cruck with threaded purlins. There is
no access to the roof space so evidence of smoke-blackening is not available.
