7/25 Trewithick Farmhouse & adjoining

Farmhouse and adjoining outbuildings. C18 house slightly remodelled circa early C19,
C19 outbuildings. Coursed granite rubble with slate sills and granite lintels.
Wheat reed thatched roof with dressed granite chimney over each gable end. Scantle
slate or corrugated sheeting over granite rubble outbuildings.
Double depth plan with central cross passage leading to stair partly within
rectangular rear projection; parlour on left of passage with shallow pantry behind
and hall/kitchen right with shallow back kitchen dairy behind. Washhouse adjoining
at right angles at the rear left; hen house returning right parallel to the rear and
piggery returning to the rear right of the hen house. There is also a lean to earth
closet at the left hand gable end of the house adjoining the wash house.
2 storeys. Nearly symmetrical 3 window south-east front with nearly central doorway
with possibly original 6-panel door with top panels later glazed. C20 lean-to rubble
porch. (An old photograph shows the house with a classical porch). C20 window over
the doorway in original square opening. The other window openings are much wider and
have circa early C19 tripartite hornless sashes with glazing bars, the 1st floor
sashes only 3 panes high with high meeting rails.
Rear is hardly altered since the circa early C19 with mostly horizontal sliding
sashes with glazing bars.
The outbuildings are also virtually complete and unaltered, the wash house and the
open fronted hen house partly enclosing a small courtyard.
Interior has mostly circa early C19 features including dog-leg stick-baluster stair
and 4 panel doors. Slate shelves survive in the pantry. The plastered parlour
ceiling is lower and is probably original as is probably the roof structure.
Trewithick Farmhouse with its outbuildings is an unusually complete and unaltered
group set in an unspoilt coastal landscape.
