2/164 Higher Trewiggett Farmhouse
Farmhouse. Circa early to mid C17 with rear service wing added in circa mid to late
C17. Slate stone rubble. Cement washed and bitumen coated rag and scantle slate
roof with gable ends and gable end to rear wing. Stone rubble end stacks.
Circa mid C17 range of two room and through passage plan, probably with kitchen on
right. In circa mid to late C17 a probable service wing was added to the rear of the
through passage and left-hand room; the service range was possibly partly remodelled
in the mid C19 with a central passage, a dairy on the left, adjoining the earlier
range and the right hand room heated by a gable end stack
Two storeys. Almost symmetrical two window front to earlier range with the front
wall partly rebuilt. Central entrance has chamfered granite basket arch with pyramid
stops. Double french windows to left with margin glazing bars and 3-light mullion
window to right with probably C19 casements. C20 glazed porch across front. First
floor with two possibly C19 3-light casements. Rear elevation of right hand side
with 2-light mullion windows on ground and first floor, the ground floor window
obscured by C19 lean-to extension.
Rear wing; two storeys, regular 3-window front. Ground floor with 2-light casements
flanking C19 plank door. Three 2-light casements above with glazing bars. Granite
cills to window openings, possibly remains of mullioned windows.
Interior; earlier range partly remodelled in C19 and C20, C20 stair inserted in
through passage, ceiling beams in left hand room replaced in late C19/C20 with C19
marble chimneypiece. Right hand room with large kitchen fireplace; partly blocked
with unchamfered timber lintel, cloam oven and possible remains of smoking chamber.
Roof structure not accessible; the feet of the principals appear to be fairly slight
above the right hand room of the earlier range.
