4/69 Trevore Farmhouse and front
- courtyard walls
Farmhouse, including front courtyard walls. C17, remodelled and extended probably in
the C18 and in the C19 and slightly extended in the C20. Granite rubble with granite
dressings. Grouted scantle slate roof with dressed granite chimney (heightened with
brick) over the left-hand gable end, an axial brick chimney toward the right and a
brick chimney over the right-hand gable end.
Plan: Long rectangular range, deeper plan including C17 or C18 outshut behind the
left-hand side, a probably C19 lean-to at the left-hand end and a C20 1-room plan
wing at right angles behind the middle. Original plan possibly 3 rooms and of the
same overall length of the present 2-storey building. Oldest part visible is a C17
fireplace at the right-hand end, but evidence of a straight joint towards the right
of the front wall suggests that the left-hand end is older, however, the front wall
has undergone successive rebuilding in the C18 and C19. Present plan is a 2 rooms
wide house on the left with its kitchen on its left and a wide 1-room plan (ground
floor) wing on the right with a C18 oven fitted to its C17 fireplace. This part has
presumably been used as a bakehouse since the C18 and its ground floor room is now
only accessible from a doorway at the front.
Exterior: 2 storeys. South-east front is a fairly regular 5 window range. Left-
hand 3-window front has granite ashlar plinth and doorway left of middle (2 windows
right of doorway). Right-hand front has central doorway and ground floor window left
of doorway only. Circa early C19 4-panel door. Circa late C19 or C20 4-pane horned
sashes. Some C17 chamfered masonry at the rear.
Interior: Bakehouse only inspected. This has a C17 chamfered granite fireplace on
the right with a C18 oven behind its left-hand jambstone. There is another oven in
the left-hand room but this is concealed in a partly blocked fireplace.
