4/199 Trelew Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa mid C18. Painted shale rubble walls with dressed granite quoins
and flat arches over ground floor openings and slate sills. Ripped scantle slate
roof sweeping lower at rear. Brick chimneys over side walls.
Central lobby entrance, kitchen/living room, left, parlour right, with central rear
stair leading off from living room, and with narrow service room at either side of
2 storeys. Nearly symmetrical 3-window south east front. Central doorway with
wooded hood on brackets over. 4-panel door with later glazing to top panels. Left-
hand kitchen/living room has wider window opening with circa early C19 hornless sash;
right-hand room (parlour) has circa early C19 16-pane sash hornless sash. First
floor windows are original C18 16-pane 2-light casements with thick internally ovolo-
moulded glazing bars.
Interior is virtually unaltered since the C18 with most of its original carpentry
and joinery: closed string dog leg stair with square newel posts, moulded caps,
column turned balusters and rounded handrail; 2-panel doors, except for doorway with
reeded architrave leading into left-hand service room; and wooden partitions.
Parlour has fine eared wooden chimney piece with key pattern detail under moulded
cornice, flanked by original niches with shaped shelves and fielded panels to
cupboard doors under.
Some panelling from this house is now in Truro Museum.
Unusual to find a small C18 farmhouse with such good quality detail.
