House. Possibly C17. Slate stone rubble. Rag slate roof with slates morticed and
tenoned at ridge. Roof with gable ends with lower roof on right and gable end to
rear wing. Stone rubble stack with slate strings on left hand gable end and similar
axial stack to right of centre, possibly originally a gable end stack. Stone rubble
stack on gable end of rear wing. Slate pots to stacks of local (Tinatgel)
The house may originally have been of 2 room plan with cross passage, both rooms
heated by gable end stacks. The ceiling beams indicate that the entrance was
directly into the left hand room with a partition (now removed) on the right hand
side of the passage. In circa late C17 the house was probably extended on the
higher, right hand side, with an unheated single storey range. The purpose of this
extension is uncertain. In circa early C18 a wing of 1 room plan, heated by a gable
end stack was added to the rear at the junction of the 2 circa C17 ranges, forming an
overall 'T' shaped plan. In circa C19 a 1-room outshot was added to the rear of the
left hand range, in the angle with the rear wing.
2 storeys on left and single storey on right with straight joint between.
Asymmetrical 2 window front. Ground floor of 2 storey range has a C20 stone rubble
porch with 3-light mullion window on left with slightly hollowed chamfers and hood
mould. 2-light casement to right. First floor has 2 C20 windows in half dormers
with raking roofs. To right the single storey range which has a plank door on left,
is lit by a C20 mullion window on right. In the higher right hand side of the rear
wing a 4-light granite mullion window has been reset with a plank door to left, near
the junction with the main range. A 3-light mullion window has been inserted below
the raking dormer roof of the rear outshot.
Interior : The partition on the higher right hand side of the passage of the early
C17 range has been removed and there is no indication of there having been a
partition on the lower side. The fireplace on the left hand gable end has been
remodelled but retains its cloam oven whilst the fireplace on the original right hand
gable end has been blocked up. There are 3 main chamfered cross beams in the C17
range, one with double stepped and hollow stops. The floor joists are largely
bowtell moulded. The floor joists in the rear wing have been replaced and the
fireplace remodelled with a renewed granite lintel.
Roof Structure : above the single storey range on right the principals are halved,
lap-jointed and pegged at the apices; the collars partly renewed. The circa earlier
C17 range to left has a 7-bay roof structure of which only part accessible. The
principals appear on the right, to be lap-jointed and pegged at the apices and a
short piece of possibly sooted purlin has been reused near the right hand gable end.
However at the lower left hand end, only the feet of the principals are visible;
these are slightly chamfered and curved and have been covered with a dark stain.
Rear wing of 3 bays of which only the straight feet of the principals are visible. A
closed truss forms the partition between the main range and rear wing.
