9/124 Trewidden House
Country house. Circa 1840's. Pebble dash over stucco. Scantle slate gabled roofs
with projecting eaves and verges. Axial, gable and lateral stuccoed stacks, some
with octagonal shafts.
Plan: large irregular double depth overall U-shaped plan. Cross passage towards
right with principal reception room left of passage and stair hall behind and 3
principal reception rooms (2 behind front wing) with a garden front, right. Tudor
Gothic style.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Asymmetrical gabled elevations with hoodmoulds over the
original openings. Overall 9 window south entrance front 2:1:2:1:1 bays. Entrance
porch in front of steep projecting bay in the angle with a gabled-ended wing, far
right. Circa late C19 porch has 4-centred arched doorway with 2-light mullion over
and octagonal corner turrets. 2 window bay addition left of porch. C19 or early C20
casements to most windows, some with leaded lights.
Interior: many good quality C19 features: original open well stair with octagonal
newels and turned balusters. 4 reception rooms inspected, each with panelling,
ceiling cornices and other detail in circa early C18 style. Rear right-hand room is
panelled in tulip wood, and the room in front of it has multiple breaks in the
architraves of the panels. The porch is panelled in bleached oak.
Trewidden is a complex and unusual house. There is an overall architectural unity
but the plan and elevations are deliberately irregular so as to resemble a house that
has evolved over a period of time.
