granite ashlar. The rear wing is in mixed slatestone and granite rubble, with
granite dressings and quoins, and slate roof; some brick.
The front range of the C18 is of single depth, with central entrance, principal room
to right and left and stair hall to rear right; service wing to rear right. It is
possible that the service wing incorporates part of the original C17 buildings. which
were part of Edgcumbe House, certainly there are incorporated features from this
earlier building. The rear wing has an east front with entrance to former passage,
room to right heated by rear lateral stack with former stair site to rear right. To
the rear left of the main range, an addition which is to the rear of Edgcumbe House.
The house has been divided, with a shop at the ground floor in the front range,
formed probably in circa mid C19; a second entrance was made to the right side of the
house, giving access directly into the stair hall, so that the shop could be separate
from the living accommodation.

glazed doors with overlight, recessed, with granite voussoirs; large 6-pane light to
right and left with voussoirs, inserted in place of earlier sashes; band course over.
First floor has three 15-pane sashes with voussoirs, second floor has three 12-pane
sashes; moulded wooden eaves cornice. The right side has no plinth; to right a 6-
panelled fielded door with 6-pane overlight possibly removed from front entrance at
time of conversion to shop, with voussoirs over and fixings for hood. At first floor
to right a 15-pane sash with voussoirs, 2nd floor right 12-pane sash. Blocked
smaller window opening under eaves to left. Slightly set back to right, 2 storey
range which appears to be of 3 builds; to left, the ground floor is in roughly
coursed granite rubble, without plinth, and with string course over; wide mid-C18
window at ground floor to left with 3-light casement and segmental arch, single light
to right. Random rubble at first floor with 12-pane sash with sidelights and

granite doorway, chamfered, with step stops, with plain door with glazed panel; to
right a C20 door with overlight, set in former window opening, with chamfered granite
jambs. At first floor a 4-pane sash in brick surround.
The rear of the rear wing was formerly the gable end of an adjoining house, now
removed; C20 light at ground floor to right. The inner side of the wing shows much
rebuilding; on the corner are granite quoins at upper level, and at first floor a 4-
pane sash in brick surround, at ground floor right 4-pane casement. Remains of
limestone moulding at base of corner, possibly part of a jamb. The rear of the main
range, in slatestone and granite rubble, probably C19, has door with overlight, 6-
pane light and 16-pane sash at first floor.
Wall attached to right forming boundary to Edgcumbe House; in granite rubble about 2
metres high and about 14 metres long. This ends with 4-centred arched granite

room has fireplace remaining from farmer rear lateral stack, and site of stair to
