- Trenoweth Farmhouse
Farmhouse. C18, but may be remodelled from older house. Painted shale and
serpentine rubble walls, slate sills and oak lintels (possibly wreck salvage). Steep
asbestos slate sweeping slightly lower at rear, formerly thatched, with rendered
brick chimneys over gable ends.
2-room plan with central passage leading to central stair plus C20 extension at rear
left. Large hearth in left-hand room presumably the hall/kitchen.
2 storeys. Nearly symmetrical 2-window south front. Wide central doorway with ledge
door and scantle slate roofed hood over supported on wooden corbels embedded into the
wall. Wide window openings, wider to ground floor. Windows are possibly original 2-
light horizontal sliding sashes with 9 panes per light. Some old glass.
Interior retains most of its original carpentry and joinery including straight
flight stair, pine muntin and plank partitions, bowtell moulded ceiling beams and oak
lintel over hearth in left-hand room.
Lying at the front is a head or sill of a 2-light mullioned window possibly from an
earlier house on this site or perhaps this house was remodelled and not entirely
rebuilt in in the C18.
A good example of a house with wide window openings which remains in fashion for
farmhouses in the C18.
