4/131 Tregreenwell Farmhouse, barns
- adjoining to south, outbuildings
adjoining to west and garden wall
to north-east

Farmhouse, barn adjoining on left, outbuildings adjoining to rear and garden wall to
front right. Circa late C16 or earlier with circa early C17 additions. Second range
added in circa mid C19.
Stone rubble. Slate roof with gable ends and gable end to rear wing. Brick axial
stack to right of centre and brick end stack to right. Stone rubble rear lateral
hall stack adjoining side lateral stack with brick shaft, incorporated in lean-to
outshot across rear.
Plan: original plan uncertain. In circa mid C19 the house was divided into 3
separate dwellings the lower end forming a house of 1-room plan; the through passage,
hall and rear wing forming a second house and a third house of double depth plan was
added to the right, on the higher side of the hall. The lower end on left is heated
by an end stack with the probable remains of a blocked stair to the side of the
fireplace. The partition between the passage and lower end was rebuilt in the mid to
late C20. The through passage is intact with circa early C17 doorframes to front and
rear, although the thin partition on the higher right hand side may have been
remodelled and moved to enlarge the entrance hall. The hall to right is heated by a
rear lateral stack. In circa early C17 a wing of 1 room plan was added to the rear
on the lower side of the hall, the entrance to the rear of the enlargened entrance
hall. The ground floor room is used as a dairy and the first floor heated by a gable
end stack. In circa C18 a probably single storey outshot extension was added to the
rear of the higher side of the hall, abutting the earlier C17 rear wing. This
kitchen range is heated by a side lateral stack which may have been reorientated,
originally intended to heat the ground floor of the C17 wing. In circa mid C19 a
range of double depth plan was added on the higher right hand side of the hall
possibly on the site of an earlier inner room. The C19 range comprised 2 front rooms
heated by end stacks, a central framed stair and service rooms to rear. Possibly
contemporary with this the lean-to outshot to the rear of the hall was partly
remodelled and re-roofed.
Exterior : 2 storeys. Asymmetrical 1:3:2 window front with lower roof over lower end
on left. To left C19 tripartite sash on ground floor and C19 16-pane sash in gabled
half dormer above. To right the central range has a C19 6-panel door in a circa
early C17 ovolo moulded and ogee stopped timber doorframe, a 1-light granite
chamfered window frame, C19 tripartite sash with wide timber lintel and datestone
HH1801 to right. Above a 16-pane sash, an early C19 20-pane sash and a horned 16-
pane sash. Straight joint between central range and mid C19 extension to right which
has a symmetrical 2 window front with 16-pane hornless sashes and a 19 6-panel door
with reused circa C17 granite chamfered lintel above.
Rear elevation; rear door of through passage with circa early C17 doorframe with
granite chamfered jambs and lintels and straight cut stops. Timber 2-light mullion
window to rear of lower end and 3-light timber mullion window in side wall of rear
wing with ovolo-moulded mullions on inner face, the lintel and cills replaced.
Interior : Lower end on left partly derelict with remains of 2 chamfered floor joists
with mortice holes for cross beams. Large chamfered granite lintel to fireplace and
cloam oven. Lintel to blocked opening on left of fireplace, probably a blocked newel
Floor of passage granite and slate flags. Entrance to rear wing has C17 ovolo
moulded doorframe and C18 2-panel door. C20 grate to hall fireplace and floor joists
renewed in early C20. Reused C18 doorframe to opening inserted in 1930s between
central range and C19 addition; ovolo moulded jambs. First floor room of rear wing
has C17 ovolo moulded doorframe and C17 2-panel door. Granite hollow chamfered
fireplace in gable end. Roof structure above hall only partly visible but appears to
be late C16 or earlier with threaded purlins and probably morticed apices to
principals. C20 roof above rear wing and C20 roof structure with 1 circa C18 truss
to lower end.
Circa C18 stone rubble barn with galvanised roof added on left hand gable end
projecting forward from house forming an overall 'L' shaped plan. Stone rubble steps
up to first floor in front gable end. Possibly reused 2-light granite mullion window
to rear. Further barn to rear left of stone rubble with slate roof and single storey
outbuildings to rear. These outbuildings have thick stone rubble walls with several
pieces of dressed granite, probably resited. The roof structures are of early C19
and later.
Garden wall to front right of house, overgrown but believed to contain several
beeboles. Mounting block adjoining.
