4/118 Carleen Farmhouse

Farmhouse. Probably C17. Painted rubble with slate sills and wooden lintels.
Scantle slate roofs, C19 heightened eaves to the main roof, conical roof over semi
circular rear stair turret and single storey lean-to at rear left. Brick chimneys
over gable ends.
Plan: Originally 2 rooms with slightly larger hall/kitchen left and parlour right,
cross passage between leading to winder stair in semicircular rear projection. Now
one room. Extended by lean-to service rooms behind the hall probably in the C19 and
further extended by lean-to at the right hand end in the C20.
Two storeys. Irregular 3 window north-east front with 1st floor windows grouped
towards right. Entrance is slightly right of middle and within C20 porch is the
original triangular-arched oak doorway formed of 2 grown jambs cranked at the top to
form a pointed straight sided arch. The C19 door is ledged and the outer planks are
V-jointed at the joints and mid-way between. The windows are circa late C19
horizontal sliding sashes except for 1st floor right which is 2 light casement.
The rear stair turret has a small mid-floor window opening. In an outbuilding to the
south east is a window with 3 round-headed slits carved out of one piece of wood,
possibly the original stair window.
Interior has a resited C18 2-panel door; large fireplace in left hand room and
newel/winder stair with wooden treads. First floor and roof not inspected. The
newel stair turret is a remarkable survival in this part of Cornwall and the arched
doorway is possibly unique.
