7/89 The Summer House
-
GV II

Summer house. Circa mid C18. Rendered walls. Granite steps and iron railing, some
reused C16 or C17 granite features. Pyramidal scantle slate roof over a moulded
eaves cornice. Brick chimney over the left hand side.
Plan: square plan first floor room over ground floor or basement (now subdivided
floors).
Exterior: 2 storeys. Symmetrical 2 window north front with central reused C16 or
early C17 moulded doorway. Old door. The central first floor doorway (with C20
door) is approached by a double flight of C18 steps with the landing bridge forming a
porch for the ground floor doorway. Original C18 iron balustrade with ramped hand
rail. The 2 first floor windows are original 12-pane hornless sashes with thick
glazing bars. In the right hand wall is a C16 or early C17 moulded 2-light mullioned
window with round-headed arched lights.
Interior: first floor has original coved ceiling with egg and dart over bead and reel
cornice. C18 chimney piece at either side with the Harris crest over each (one crest
obscured).
The reused features probably from Kenegie House increase the interest of a building
type uncommon in Cornwall.
