3/178 Treheveras Farmhouse and adjoining
- house
Farmhouse and adjoining house. Circa late C17. Painted rubble and cob, and render
to front and some asbestos cladding (probably originally slatehanging) to part of
rear wing. Timber lintels. Asbestos slate roofs of mainhouse with brick chimneys
over gable ends, hipped-roofed wing to rear, right of middle with large external
stone lateral stack with brick shaft to east wall, later lean-to in north west angle
with brick chimney against original rear wall. Further roof at lower level over
adjoining house, to right (east) of main house, with brick chimney over gable end
Plan originally of irregular T with 2 front rooms of hall and parlour flanking wide
entrance passage leading to central stair and with probably kitchen in rear wing at
right angles with circa early C19 outshut inserted in north west angle. At about the
same time a further house of 2 rooms wide was added to east possibly for extended
family. Right-hand room of main house is now incorporated into this house.
2 storeys. Regular 4-window original south front plus 2-window later house to right.
Original house has central 2-storey lean-to entrance porch with wide doorway and
later top-glazed panel door with wide C19 2-light casement over. Small window
openings to right of porch are probably C20 insertions. Original wide window
openings to farther right and to left of porch. C20 metal windows to right, but old
20-pane hornless sash to ground floor left and circa early C19 3-light casement over
with 6 panes per light.
Later house has doorway to ground floor left and C20 window right but retains
original 12-pane 2-light casements over. This garden front is really the rear.
Other front (north) is symmetrical with central doorway and original 16-pane hornless
sashes except C20 window to ground floor right. Rear of wing has circa early C19
hornless sash to middle and over. Lean-to, right, has doorway, left, with deeply
recessed, (to form open porch), ledged door and 12-pane 2-light casement to right.
Rubble north walling of wing and lean-to are integral but walling of wing is very
thin and is probably just a facing against stud work. Left-hand and return walling
is clad in asbestos sheeting.
Interior has much original structure and detail including: muntin and plank
partitions with alternate heavy and light muntins; cross beam and oak joist floor
structure to entrance hall and wing; original L stair with closed string; square
newel with stepped cap and widely spaced turned balusters; and to first floor are
three 2-panel doors with fielded panels. Further features are probably hidden. Roof
structure not inspected but said to be probably original.
One of the least altered C17 houses in this part of Cornwall.
