6/88 Trevurvas Wollas, front garden
including well and adjoining
building at approx 3m north west

House, probably C17. Granite rubble with dressed granite quoins, sills, jambstones,
lintels and kneeler stones. Scantle slate roofs. Rendered granite chimney over
junction of L-shaped gable ended roofs and granite stack over front gable end of
wing. Moulded kneelers.
Overall irregular L-shaped plan but also projecting slightly at the left hand side of
the wing which adjoins in front at right angles to the left hand side of the main
Overall irregular L-shaped plan formed by main range and wing projecting at front
left, also at the left of the main range, filling the outer angle between the main
range and the wing, is an unheated service room projecting beyond the left hand wall
of the wing.
Two room plan plus parlour wing at right angles joined at the corners with a doorway
through and a probably later buttery/pantry filling the outside angle. The
hall/kitchen is at the left hand side of the main 2-room part (now 1 room) and has an
enormous fireplace with an oven. This range is built against a bank at the rear and
the right hand room contains a well niche formerly fed by a spring. This right hand
room, with a probably later smaller granite fireplace, was possibly originally a kind
of buttery. There was formerly a passage running axially along the rear of the
parlour wing approached by the doorway in the left hand wall and leading to a doorway
beside the fireplace in the hall/kitchen. The upper floor in this part has been
Two storeys. Parlour front and hall/kitchen front at right angles to each other the
regular one window parlour front facing south east and the nearly symmetrical 3-
window hall/kitchen front facing south west. The parlour front has 16-pane 2-light
casement to ground floor and 12-pane horned sash over. Flanking the 1st floor window
below the original eaves level are 2 rows of pigeon holes. The hall/kitchen front
has doorway left of middle (splayed inside, so was probably originally a window).
C20 glazed door. Slate lean-to open porch. Fixed 9-pane casements to ground floor
and 12-pane horned sashes to 1st floor openings.
Interior remodelled in the C20 but retaining structural features described in the
Rubble garden wall at the front encloses a small rectangular garden. Dressed round-
headed granite monolith gate piers to the gateway which aligns with the house
At the left hand side of the house, a coped granite rubble wall surrounds a well on 2
sides. The 3rd (rear) side is a single storey outhouse. The well is complete with a
wooden windlass with an iron crank handle, the windlass bearing on an unhewn granite
monolith at one end and the outbuilding at the other end.
Trevorvas Wollas has a very interesting but puzzling plan, the development of which
might be resolved by making measured plans.
