8/24 Trevorrow Farmhouse, front garden
- walls and gate piers
Farmhouse, front garden walls and gate piers. C17, extended in the C18 and C19.
Granite ashlar and granite rubble with granite dressings. Grouted scantle slate
roofs with brick chimneys over the gable ends and over central cross wall.
Plan: now an overall irregular L-shaped plan. Originally probably a 3 room and
through passage plan. In the C18 the front wall of the hall and inner room, right,
were built forward to provide 2 parlours (small parlour left and large parlour right
with cross passage between) with service rooms flanking a large stair behind. There
is a second stair partly in the C17 stair position at the rear right of the through
passage. In the C19 a one room plan service wing was built at right angles behind
the left hand room. In the C17 the hall was probably right of the passage and a
parlour left with large pair of 3 light mullioned windows at the front and a another
window beside the gable end fireplace. The hall was probably floored over for there
is a blocked first floor window in the rear wall.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Overall 6 window front: 2 window front of the C17 house set
back on the left and regular C18 4 window granite ashlar front on the right.
C17 front has pair of wide chamfered C17 windows middle and left, each with stooling
for 2 mullions, and C17 chamfered doorway, right, with dice stops. C20 porch in
front. The first floor openings are C18 or C19 remodellings of the originals. C19
C18 front has doorway left middle with C19 panelled door within circa late C19
glazed box porch. 4-paned horned sashes of similar date.
Rear has 4 C17 windows: 2 windows blocked including mid-floor stair window with
central mullions; ground floor (hall) window with stooling for central mullion and
narrow first floor window. Possibly C17 doorway (not inspected).
Left-hand gable end has blocked C17 ground and first floor windows.
Interior: C17 features hidden or removed; C18 moulded plaster cornices to the 2
parlour and passage between and some C18 ovolo-moulded architraves. Otherwise C19
features where inspected. First floor and roof structure not inspected.
Rubble and cob walls partly enclose a rectangular garden at the front. Right hand
wall is slate coped. The gateway has granite monolith piers and there is a mounting
block inside the gateway on the left.
