Glenfeadon House
House, now hotel. Mid C19, for the Basset family of Tehidy, altered in later
C19. Coursed killas rubble with granite dressings and ashlar additions, slate roof.
Double-depth plan with set-back side wings. Two storeys over an exposed
basement, 3 bays with l-bay side wings, symmetrical; rusticated quoins, basement
of channelled rustication, now under a loggia added to the front of the raised
ground floor, and supported by square piers similarly rusticated. In the centre a
flight of double-returned steps (protected by cast-iron ornamental balustrades)
leads to the entrance in the centre of the loggia, which has an arcade of 7
moulded round-headed arches on Tuscan columns mounted on a balustrade, and a
balustraded parapet; the centre is an enclosed porch which has a doorway framed
by pilasters, fanlight with radiating glaring bars, keystone, and floating cornice
on double consoles; and at 1st floor above this is a rectangular bay window in
similar style, with a 12-pane sash in the front, round-headed windows in the
sides, and a balustraded parapet. Flanking the porch are large 12-pane sashed
windows with rusticated surrounds and stepped voussoirs with raised keystones; all
the other windows are similar except that the lintels are plain. Hipped roof with
bracketed eaves and side-wall chimneys (those on the right cut down). Left end
of left wing has canted bay window with balustrade.
