7/22 Tolver Farmhouse
Farmhouse, now 2 houses. Probably late C16 or early C17, front wall partly rebuilt
in the C19. Granite rubble with granite dressings. Slurried scantle slate roofs,
hipped over front porch and left hand end, otherwise gable ends. Dressed granite
axial stack over cross wall towards right, rubble stack at rear gable of wing and
lateral stacks to front left and over rear wall.
Plan: overall L-shaped plan with 3 room and through passage plan along the front;
service or parlour wing behind the left hand room; a 2-storey porch in front of the
passage and a large probably C18 stair tower behind the right hand room. The C16 or
C17 hall is on the right of the passage and is heated by a large rear lateral
fireplace. Far right is a C19 1-room plan dairy extension.
Exterior: 2 storeys. Overall slightly irregular 4 window south front. 2 storey porch
towards left with original moulded doorway with hoodmould over (now fitted with
window). Opening over reduced circa late C19. Most windows are circa late C19
horned sashes. Present doorway right of porch.
C17 3-light window with mullions removed to middle of left hand wall and C17
chamfered doorway at rear of through passage.
Interior: C17 or earlier features include large moulded hall fireplace with scrolled
stops and moulded chamfered doorway with pyramid stops from hall to passage behind
right hand parlour. C18 stair. Interior of left-hand house, first floor and roof
structure not inspected but may be original.
The C17 features that survive are of high quality and this was obviously one of the
most important houses in this part of Cornwall in the C17 or earlier.
