3/129 Treveor Farmhouse with attached
- front wall and gateway


Farmhouse, with attached front wall and gateway. Early C17, with addition and
alterations of later C17. Extended and altered circa mid C19, with later C19
additions and some C20 alterations. Granite rubble with granite dressings. Slurried
scantle slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends. Gable end stack to left with
cornice and octagonal granite shaft; rear lateral stack to right with C19 brick
shaft. The front gable end of the wing to right has a gable end stack with octagonal
granite shaft, and the stack at the right side has tall octagonal granite shaft. In
the rear range there are two stacks at the right side with brick shafts.
Plan: The original building is of 2-room and through passage plan; the lower end room
is to left, heated from a gable end stack to left, and the hall is to right, heated
from a rear lateral stack. The attached front wall encloses a forecourt, with a
gateway opposite the passage front doorway. In circa mid - late C17, the house was
extended at the right end, with one room added at the right end, heated from a stack
at the right side, and one room in front of this, heated from a stack at the front
gable end. This formed an L-plan overall. In the C19, the room at ground floor at
the right end was used as a dairy. Circa early - mid C19, an addition of one-room
plan was made to rear right, heated from a stack at the gable end at the right side.
Later in the C19, a further addition was made to the rear of this, with a coach
house/shed at ground floor and an upper room also heated from a stack at the right
side; the end of this was built into the bank, with access to the loft at upper
ground floor level to rear. Circa late C19 - early C20, an addition was made along
the rear of the main range, partly 2-storey, and partly as a covered corridor with a
porch at the right end.
Exterior: 2 storeys, asymmetrical 4-window front. The lower end to left has two 3-
light hollow-chamfered granite windows with hood moulds and C20 glazing at ground and
first floor. The doorway to the passage is with granite surround, chamfered, with 2-
centred arch, with C19 plank door. To right at ground floor there are two 3-light
hollow-chamfered granite windows, with the level of the cills dropped in the C19,
with chamfered wooden mullions and hood moulds. At first floor there are two 3-light
hollow-chamfered granite windows. The wing to front right is 2-storey; at ground
floor on the inner side is a 3-light granite window with hollow-chamfered surround,
the level of the cill also dropped with chamfered wooden mullions and hood mould, at
first floor a 3-light hollow-chamfered granite window with hood mould. The front
gable end of the wing is blind. All the granite windows are C17.
Attached to front left is the forecourt wall, running in an L-plan, about 1½ metres
high, in granite rubble with granite coping. The wall extends about 20 metres along
the front and is about 10 metres deep. The front gateway has granite surround,
hollow-chamfered with 4-centred arch, with coping over the plain piers with flat
capitals to each side.
The left gable end of the house is blind; the stack appears to be rebuilt, so the
octagonal stacks may be an alteration of mid - late C17. At the right side, there
are no windows to the front room in the wing; the room at the right end of the main
range has 2-light hollow-chamfered granite window at ground floor and similar 3-light
granite window at first floor. To right is the gable end of the first C19 addition,
with 2-light C19 casement with granite lintel at first floor. Stepped back to right
is the gable end of the second C19 addition, blind. The rear gable end of the C19
wing has plank door with granite lintel at upper ground level. At the inner side of
the wing, there are plank double doors to the coach house and 3-light C19 casement
with granite lintel at first floor. Stepped back to right is the gable end of the
second C19 addition, blind. The rear gable end of the C19 wing has plank door with
granite lintel at first floor. The first floor C19 addition has C19 6-pane sash with
segmental brick arch at ground floor and 6-pane sash with granite lintel at first
floor. The rear of the main range has C19 addition for corridor, partly 2-storey,
with C19 porch with hipped roof to right; two 2-light casements to the corridor.
At first floor to right there is a 3-light window with C19 margin-glazing and C17
hollow-chamfered granite surround with hood mould.
Interior: Not fully accessible at time of survey (October 1987). The rear doorway
to the passage is concealed by the C19 addition; this has chamfered granite surround
with 2-centred arch, plank door with 4-centred arch. There is a C19 straight stair
inserted in the through passage. The hall has C20 fireplace to the rear lateral
stack, and is ceiled. the lower end room has C19 ceiling beams and granite paved
floor, the gable end fireplace altered in C19. The dairy at the right end has
slate shelves. The house appearsto have been much remodelled internally in circa
mid - late C19, although there may be other features of the C17 remaining on the
first floor, such as beams or doorframes. Roof not accessible.
