Trenow and front garden walls

(Formerly listed as Binner Vean and front garden walls)

Farmhouse and front garden walls. Circa early C19. Killas rubble walls with dressed
granite quoins, jambstones, bonding stones, sills and lintels. Grouted scantle slate
roof with brick chimneys over the gable ends.
Double depth plan: 2 nearly equal front rooms with cross passage between leading to
central stair between 2 shallow service rooms. The left hand front room is the
original kitchen/living room (now 1 room with the room behind) and the right hand
front room is the parlour. A small C19 outbuilding, possibly a stable, adjoins the
left hand gable end towards the rear and a C20 kitchen adjoins at the opposite end in
a similar position.
2 storeys. Nearly symmetrical 3 window south-south-east front with roughly central
doorway. 4-panel door, later glazed to top panels and circa late C19 sash windows
with hornless lower inner sashes and horned upper sashes. Ashlar plinth and ashlar
lintel course.
Interior is structurally fairly complete with the original first floor and probably
original roof structure and most original partitions. Large granite fireplace in the
left hand front room.
The front garden is rectangular and surrounded by a slurried rubble-coped rubble
wall. The gateway is aligned with the front doorway and is flanked by round-headed
granite monolithic jambs.
An unspoiled C19 farmhouse near Binnerton Manor Farmhouse qv which an interesting C17
and C18 house.
