Trevu House

Large house, now subdivided as various dwellings. Early C19, altered.
Uncoursed rubble, the west facade rendered and the south pebble-dashed;
roof of slate on the front slopes and modern pantiles on the rear. Large
U-plan formed by main range on north-south axis with long rear wings. All
2 storeys; symmetrical north facade of 3:3:3 bays, the centre breaking
forwards slightly; high plinth, banded corner pilasters. The 3-bay pilastered
centre has a central entrance up a flight of 6 steps with nosings,
protected by a tetrastyle Doric porch with fluted granite columns and
unfluted pilasters, wooden entablature with triglyphs, panelled and glazed
door with margin panes; two 12-pane sashed windows on each floor and a
16-pane sash above the porch, all unhorned and with exposed boxes and
raised sills and keystones; and a plain parapet with an urn at the right-
hand corner. The 3-bay side ranges each have 2 large canted bay windows
in the outer bays, with 12- and 16-pane sashes, a 12-pane sash in the
centre and 3 others above, all matching those of the centre. The south
wing is of bays, with a flat-roofed pilastered porch to the 1st bay, a 2-
storey canted bay in the centre, a doorway in the 4th bay, and otherwise
4-pane sashed fenestration. The north (service) wing has inter alia some
12-pane sashed windows; the rear is mostly altered, interior not inspected.
History: said to have been built for the Pickford Smith family,
manufacturers of explosives.
