Farmhouse. Circa early C19 to an archaic design or remodelled from earlier house.
For R.A. Daniell. Painted slatestone rubble walls. Tiled roof with brick chimneys
over gable ends and external stone lateral stack to front.
3-room through passage plan plus C20 1-room addition to each end, the centre room

are early C19 tripartite casements with central 12-pane side opening lights and 4-
paned sidelights. All with mostly original crown glass. Ground floor windows are
later 12-pane 2-light casements.
Interior is simple with early C19 4-panel doors surviving to first floor rooms.
A reference to this house in The West Briton of 31st July, 1818 reads:
"At invitation of R.A. Daniell a numerous party of ladies and gents of Truro to dine
at the beautiful cottage lately erected by him at Roundwood...".
It is said that Thomas Daniell who remodelled Trelissick House circa 1825, lost
Trelissick to Lord Falmouth by gambling and then came to live at Roundwood. It is
certainly recorded that Trelissick Estate was sold to Lord Falmouth in 1832, but
Daniell emigrated in 1832, the same year that the house, quay and 9 acres of land
were advertised to let by Lord Falmouth in the West Briton.
West Briton information from 'Roundwood Quay on the Fal' by R.C. Curtis.
