Listing Text

4/20 Cottage 30m to north west of
- Trevathan Farmhouse
House with gutted rear wing on right. Circa 1720s. Ashlar stone with partly cement-
washed slate roof with brick gable end stacks, right-hand projecting and axial stack
heating higher end of hall to right of centre.
Plan altered and original arrangement uncertain. Comprises 2-room plan on left and
remains of 1-room plan to right with rear wing behind. Possibly originally 3-room
plan with stair in projection at rear of higher end of hall and evidence of blocked
door leading from higher end of hall into room on right. The entrance to the left-
hand range leads directly into the hall and there is no sign of an original cross
passage. The rear wing on the right has been partly demolished. It was heated by
side lateral stack which backs onto the stair projection and it is possible that this
wing predated the 1720s range.
2 storeys regular 4-window front with dressed stone arches to ground floor openings.
Range on left-hand side with symmetrical 3-window front with 2 C20 pvc cross windows
probably replacing original mullion and transom windows. Central circa C18 6-panel
door with fanlight above. First floor with 3 C20 pvc windows in sash openings.
Right-hand 1-window range with double C19 18-pane sash on ground floor and C19 24-
pane hornless sash on first floor. Original mullion and transom window to stair
projection to rear of left-hand range.
Interior with fairly complete circa 1720s interior with 6-panel doors with raised
and fielded panels on ground floor and 3-panel doors with original hinges on first
floor. Left-hand room with early C18 moulded cornice broken forward over timber
bolection moulded fireplace with contemporary china cupboard on left with raised and
fielded panels. Larger right-hand room, presumably hall, has been partly partitioned
off on the left in circa 1950s to provided a cross passage. The moulded early C18
plaster cornice to this room indicates that the entrance originally opened directly
into the hall; C20 chimney piece. Stair in projection to rear at higher end of hall;
circa 1720s open-well stair with closed string, turned balusters, square newels and
moulded rail. Contemporary plasterwork above with angel's head with strings of
foliage above and below in raised fielded panel. First floor with some moulded
cornices. Roof timbers not inspected. Right-hand range with fielded panelled
