3/235 Treswen Farmhouse

Farmhouse. Circa early C18. Rendered stone rubble and cob. Steeply pitched hipped
slate roof; scantle slates to rear and rag slates on front slope. Projecting side
and rear stacks with brick shafts and set offs and cloam oven projection in rear
Plan: Double depth plan; the front range containing a parlour on left and hall on
right, both heated by end stacks. The entrance, in the centre, leads directly into
the hall, the passage and hall found in earlier houses of the C17, having merged in
this circa early C18 house, to become an entrance hall. The stair originally rose
from this entrance hall, at the back end of the 'screen passage'. To the rear of the
hall is the kitchen, heated by a stack on the rear wall and the dairy, in an outshut,
is to the rear of the parlour. This type of plan first appeared in the mid C17
continues into the early C18; Treswen Farmhouse is a good, unaltered example. There
is a later circa C19 outshut on the left hand end.
Exterior: 2-storeys. Symmetrical 4-window front. Central large part glazed C20 porch
with C20 glazed inner door flanked by two C19 bay windows with pointed headed lights.
4-horned 16-pane sashes on the first floor. Lean-to outshut on left has a C19 glazed
porch with margin glazing bars.
Interior: Hall on right of front range is heated by a large fireplace with a
chamfered granite lintel with run-out stops and stone rubble jambs. Cloam oven
marked Fishley. The floor joists are heavy and closely set but are unmoulded and
probably for a plaster ceiling. The parlour has a circa early C18 heavy moulded
cornice. The rear kitchen wing has close set chamfered floor joists and the
fireplace is partly blocked and heated by a Rayburn stove. Adjoining the C19 stair
in the outshut is the remains of some C18 raised and fielded panelling which may have
been reset from the parlour. The door to the parlour is C18 and there are several C18
doors on the first floor.
