7/41 Trevague Farmhouse and adjoining
- barn


Farmhouse with barn attached on left. Probably C17 origins remodelled and refronted
in early C19. Stone rubble with large granite quoins and granite dressings. Rag
slate roof: lower roof over farmhouse on right with gable ends. Higher roof over
barn on left with hipped and half hipped ends. Stone rubble axial stack and end
stack on right and brick shaft to service end stack to rear.
Plan: Unusual plan, the original arrangement uncertain. The existing plan with a
barn on left and farmhouse on right. The house has an entrance passage on left with
principal room adjoining on right, originally heated by an end stack. The house was
then extended further to the right in circa early C19 with a second room, probably a
parlour, heated by an end stack. The house was further extended across the rear with
a kitchen to rear of the passage and original room and a dairy to rear of the
parlour. Adjoining on the left hand side is a barn with shippons on ground floor and
loft above. There is no straight joint between the dwelling house and barn
suggesting that the barn is contemporary with the front wall of the house. Part of
the ground floor of the barn has been incorporated into the house forming a passage
whilst a C20 stair has been inserted in the original passage.
Exterior: Two storeys. Asymmetrical front elevation with taller barn on left. The
granite lintels above the ground floor openings of the house and barn have been
extended to form a continuous flat string band. House to right has a C19 door on
left and two probably C19 2-light casements to right. First floor with three
probably C19 2-light casements above ground floor openings. The symmetrical two
storey elevation to the barn on left has three doors on ground floor with central
loft door above. A C20 porch has been built infront of the right hand door of the
barn and the left hand door of the house. Rear elevation of barn with external stone
rubble steps up to loft with slate hipped hood above.
Interior: The house has a C20 stair inserted in the original passage. The room
directly to right of the passage has a large chamfered cross beam of considerable
depth. The ceiling is plastered and the design of the joists is uncertain. Roof
structure not accessible although feet of the principals and collar are chamfered.
The barn has a pegged A-frame roof.
