SX 07 SW
4/115 Trescowe and garden wall and
railings to front south east


Farmhouse and garden wall and railings to front. Probably early C17 origins extended
in C18 and remodelled in the mid C19. Stone rubble, rendered on front. Slate roof
with hipped ends to front range, continued in cat slide over service range on right;
hipped ends to rear wings. Rendered brick end and side lateral stacks.
Plan: The original plan is uncertain, the lower range to rear right comprising the
circa C17 range. However, although the main range has mid C19 carpentry and joinery
details it is probable that it was remodelled rather than completely rebuilt in the
C19. Three C17 muntins of a partition to the rear of the front right hand room
indicate the original high quality of the earlier carpentry.
The house comprises a main range of 'L' shaped plan, originally with central front
entrance flanked by 2 principal rooms heated by end stacks and stair and third
principal room in the rear wing to left. To rear right, the earlier C17 range was
converted to accomodate service rooms, probably in the C19.
Exterior: 2-storeys and attic. Almost symmetrical 3-window front with mid to late
C19 casement. Central entrance now blocked. Two 3-light casements on ground floor
and two 3-light casements flanking a central 2-light casement on first floor. 2 full
hipped dormers to attic with 2-light casements. Lean-to roof on right to lower
service range.
Interior: Main range with chimney-pieces largely replaced in C20, mid C19 stair to
rear of left hand room. Rear left hand room has ornate complete mid C19 plaster
cornice. Three C17 chamfered muntins with stepped and tongue stops at top and bottom
in partition to rear of right hand room. Service range has large roughly finished
joists. Several C18 2-panel doors to first floor and attic.
Roof Structure: Of main range circa mid to late C19. Roof structure to earlier
range with circa C18 principals, the rafters and collars probably replaced in the C19
and C20.
Garden wall and railings to front of circa C19. Low stone rubble garden wall with
C19 wrought iron railings and gate.
