5/54 Tregontallon Farmhouse including
- garden wall immediately to south


Farmhouse. C18, extended and minor alterations in the C19 and with small C20
extension at the rear. Limewashed granite rubble. Slurried scantle slate roof with
gable ends. Dressed granite stacks at gable ends with stone caps, the right hand
stack heightened in brick.
Plan: Double depth plan. 2 principal front rooms, the kitchen to the left and
parlour to the right, both heated from gable end fireplaces. There may have been a
cross-passage between the 2 rooms originally but the central entrance now gives
direct entry into the kitchen with a short section of partition on the left side of
the front doorway. At the back there is a shallow unheated diary to the right, a
dog-leg staircase partitioned off in a stairwell to the left of centre and what must
have been a pantry to the left at the back. The pantry was coverted into a lobby
when the large single storey kitchen outshut was added at the left end in the C19; it
has a fireplace on the back wall and a side doorway. The front porch is probably a
contemporary C19 addition. Apart from the small C20 single storey bathroom extension
at the back of the left hand end the house has been virtually unaltered since the
Exterior: 2 storeys. Almost symmetrical 2-window range. Small window openings with
late C19 6-pane sashes and slate cills. Large enclosed porch slightly to left of
centre, limewashed stone rubble with slurried scantle slate lean-to roof and C19
panelled double doors, the inner doorway has a wide late C18 6-panel door, the top
panels glazed. The lean-to outshut at the left hand end has a late C19 4-pane sash
at the front and a C20 plank door at the side.
The rear elevation has a horizontally sliding sash to stairs to the right of centre
and a ground floor casement to left obscurred by a zing gauze. To the right a small
C20 rendered flat roof single storey extension.
Including the garden area wall in front of the house; C19, low stone rubble wall
roughly semi-circular on plan with small granite monolithic gate-piers at the centre
in front of the porch. The wall encloses a small front garden from the farmyard.
Interior: The interior is very unaltered. The ground floor rooms have exposed
joists with ovolo edge moulding. The parlour to the right has a small china cupboard
to the side of the fireplace with moulded round head with a reeded keyblock; the
fireplace has a C20 grate. The kitchen to the left has a short section of plank
partition inside the front doorway which is probably all that remains of the
partition on the lower side of the cross passage. The kitchen fireplace is blocked
with a C20 range. The dairy has granite slab shelves. The stairwell is lined with
plank partitions with moulded muntins and has a wide dog-leg staircase with a closed
string thick square balusters, moulded handrail and square newels with simple caps.
There are various simple 2-panel and plank doors. The first floor rooms have
plastered ceilings and the roof structure is concealed. The out-kitchen in the
outshut at the left hand end has a large fireplace at the back.
This is a most attractive and remarkably unaltered small farmhouse with an
interesting plan.
Tregontallon was part of the manor of Tucoys. It was granted to the hospital of St
John of Helston. At the dissolution of the hospital its lands including Tregontallon
passed to the crown. It eventually passed to the Godolphins and became the property
of the Dukes of Leeds. In 1842 the farm was 106 acres.
