Manor House. Built for John Tregian circa 1520 with later additions. Shale
rubble, granite dressings and ashlar with scantle and asbestos slate roofs. 3
room, double depth irregular plan. 2 storeys throughout. North front is 2:3:1
bays. First bay has blocked C16 four centred arched granite moulded doorframe with
2 light granite 4 centred arched mullion to first floor. Over and slightly to
right is pair of tall brick chimneys joined at cornice level. Roof hipped to left.
Second wider bay has jambs and label stops of large mullioned window removed
probably C18 and replaced with rubble walling and smaller opening spanned by keyed
granite flat arch and later pair of 16 paned sashes divided by stone pier. 12-
paned sash over to right. Next 3 bays broken forward slightly and taller. Granite
ashlar symmetrical 3 window front of 3 light hollow chamfered mullions with outer
frames of ovolo and cavetto mouldings. (This walling was taken down and
reassembled in the 1970s). Granite framed 4 centred arched doorway with hood mould
is adjoining to right and possibly survives insitu from before the circa 1600
alteration. Granite ashlar walling over and to right is probably C19 rebuild. C19
studded door in C16 style. 12 paned sash to right and over. Top third of wall is
shale rubble. Roof hipped to right. East front is late C18 rebuild of mainly
shale rubble with granite jamb and quoin stones and keyed flat arches. 3 windows,
central 7 panel door with 16 pane sash over. Flanking ground and first floor
windows are 12 pane sashes with sidelights. Ground floor walling to right is much
thicker and is probably C16 refaced. Hipped scantle slate roof over. South front
is irregular moisture with C19 hipped roofed part to left (possibly earlier core).
Central lean-to with granite ashlar walling and projecting shale and granite wall
to right incorporating main stair window. Lower courses are granite ashlar and
probably C16. A smiling granite gargoyle (probably resited) survives at valley
outlet between hipped roofs to west end. Interior has central hall with C16
freestone 4 centred arched fireplace with turned decoration to jambs and 4 panels
over arch containings curved mermaids and men (those to left have wings). Brick
fireback with herringbone pattern to centre. Fireplace at other end of hall is
huge with rough oak lintel and reused materials in back including window head in
passage side. Reused carved stone (inverted) over doorway leading to passage at
west end. 2 panelled door at back of hall at east end is in moulded granite arched
frame. Main stair is dog leg with turned newel and plain square balusters and 2
