5/81 Trefrew and garden walls and gate-
- piers to front

House and garden walls and gatepiers to front. Circa date C16 or early C17, possibly
with C15 origins. Stone rubble with granite quoins. Rag slate roof with gable ends
with parallel roof with gable ends to rear. Stone rubble axial, originally end stack
to right and rear lateral stack to left. Projecting end stack of stone rubble with
brick shaft to right of rear range.
Plan : Original plan uncertain. The entrance has a circa C15 granite arch and there
are several pieces of cut stone of possibly C15 in yard. Additionally the front wall
is very thick. However, the house appears to have a circa late C16 or early C17 2-
room and through passage arrangement, the left hand room heated by a rear lateral
stack and the right hand larger, probably hall kitchen heated by an end stack. In
circa C18 or early C19 a rear outshot was added across the rear elevation and a lean-
to outshot added on the right hand gable end, previously heated by an end stack, now
removed. In circa mid C20 the lean-to outshot was raised to 2-storeys. The circa
early C17 doorframe to rear of this outshot has probably been reset.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Regular 4 window front with renewed 6-pane sashes on ground
floor and 4-pane sashes on first. Entrance to left of centre with 4-centred granite
arch with roll mould and carved spandrels.
Interior : Slate flag floors with suspended timber floor to left hand room. Wide
passage flanked by lath and plaster partitions and circa C19 stair inserted to rear
of passage. Left hand room heated by rear lateral stack with C20 tiled granite and
fireplace altered in larger right hand room with circa C17 chamfered granite lintel
and left hand jamb and right hand jamb replaced. Probably reset granite entrance to
rear of extension on right ; circa early C17 with chamfered lintel and jambs with
pyramid stops.
Roof replaced in circa late C19.
Stone rubble garden walls to front with gate piers of stone rubble and dressed
granite, square on plan.
The house remains unaltered. There are several pieces of dressed granite and
greenstone including a one-light greenstone window in the yard.
