Plan: The original house of double depth plan with 2 principal front rooms with an
entrance hall between containing the staircase at the back. There are 2 shallow
service rooms at the back, the kitchen to the left and a dairy to the right. In
circa mid C19 a 1-room plan extension was added at the left end and a single storey
outshut was built at the right end.
Exterior: 2 storeys. 1:2 window range. The 2 window part to the right is the
original house with a doorway slightly to the right of centre with a mid C19
panelled door and a small rectangular overlight. All the windows at the front are
C19 16-pane sashes with horns and granite lintels and cills, the left hand windows
have slate cills. To the right a higher parapet with brick battlements screens the
outshut at this end.
Rear elevation : All C19 sashes, a large round-headed stair window to left of

the left. Single storey outshut at the left-hand end.
Including low granite rubble garden area wall in front of the house, with granite
gate-piers and an ornate iron gate.
Interior not inspected but is said to have been little altered and there is
apparantly a cooking range dated 1866. There is a plank partition on th left-hand
side of the entrance hall.
Seworgan was in the manor of Tucoys. The holding was divided into three in 1842
which may be the date of the remodelling of the house.
