Rosewarne Wollas
1.12.51 including Nos.l and 2 and rear
screen wall (formerly listed as
Lower Rosewarne)

Manor house, subsequently farmhouse, now house and 2 cottages. C16, C17,
and C18 in various builds; altered. Mostly uncoursed granite rubble with
quoins, part slate-hung, with same squared granite blocks; slate roofs
including some scantle slates. Long single-depth range on north-west/south-
east axis facing south-west, with rear wing added in C18, and receding
wing at left end. 1½ and 2 storeys, the facade composed of 3 units, the
first (and probably the oldest) being 1½ storeys and the rest all 2 storeys
(the second probably raised and the 3rd remodelled in the later C18). The
1½ storey range at the left end, which appears to have been a hall, has a
large external gabled chimney stack offset to the right, a large square
corniced chimney rising from its half-hipped roof; this gabled wall has a
2-light mullioned window offset to the right at ground floor, with cavetto
mullion and moulded surround, and an inserted 12-pane fixed window above;
to the right, and flush with this wall, is a former porch with blocked
doorway (containing a small inserted window) under a carried down roof;
the set-back wall to the left of the chimney has very small mullioned
windows of 2, 2, and one light (the first blocked), and 2 inserted windows
above. The 2-storey range, which is slate-hung above ground floor, has at
the left end a doorway protected by a simple porch with granite jambs and
hipped roof, to the right of this a recessed mullioned window of 3+3 lights
with cavetto common mullions and roll-moulded fillet to the king mullion,
two 12-pane sashed windows above (breaking the eaves); the 3rd unit, to
the right of a vertical joint, has 3 similar windows on each floor; a
chimney on the ridge at the junction and another at the right-hand gable.
The left return wall of the left wing (Nos.l and 2 Rosewarne Wollas,
formerly known as the Kitchen), has 2 doorways and various altered
windows. Rear: 3rd unit has a 3-light mullioned window at ground floor and
a single-light window above, both with chamfered surrounds and
hoodmoulds; central rear wing has inter alia a Venetian stairwindow with
raised keystone and sashes with glazing bars, and 2-span hipped roof; 1st
unit has a wide doorway altered as a window, and a relocated mullioned
window with 2 Tudor-arched lights; north wing has remains of 2-light
mullioned windows. Attached screen wall has chamfered doorway and semi-
circular projection perhaps formerly base of tower. Interior: 1st unit
contains opposed square-headed doorways with surrounds of ovolo and
cavetto moulding, and large rectangular fireplace with chamfered jambs
(lintel renewed); drawing room in 3rd unit has fine late C18 decoration
including 4 doorways with shouldered architraves under floating cornices,
moulded plaster overmantel with swan-neck pediment, and rococo ceiling
decoration; rear wing contains early-to-mid C18 open-well staircase with
closed string, square newels, and turned balusters. Reference: Charles
