ST CLEER SX 26 NE 11/74 Trethevy Cottage - GV II Farmhouse; used as pair of cottages, and now one house. Early - mid C17, with alterations of mid C19 and some later alterations. Granite rubble, rendered except for the left side. Slate roof with ridge tiles and gable ends; gable end stack to left in granite with cornice and shaped top; tall rear lateral stack to right, also granite with cornice and shaped top. Plan: This appears to be the hall and inner room of a former 3-room plan house; the hall is to right, heated by a rear lateral stack. The inner room to left is heated by a gable end stack, and has a stair tower to rear. Probably in circa mid C19, the lower end to the right and passage was demolished, and the house was divided as two one-room plan cottages, with a stair inserted in the hall and the inner room using the stair tower; new entrance made directly into each room at the front. Now one house. The house is built into the bank at the left side. Exterior: 2 storeys, asymmetrical 4-window front; first floor has four 2-light casements, all different sizes. At ground floor, room to left has central gabled porch with 2-light casement to right and left, each with chamfered granite surround, one to right with stooling remaining for mullion. Room to right has central door with 2-light casement to right and left, one to left also with granite surround. The left side is built into the bank, blind. The right side has a small single light at first floor. Rear has large external weathered stack behind the hall; no oven projection. To right, the square stair tower, with pitched roof and small single light. Interior: The hall to right has very large chamfered granite lintel to the rear fireplace, supported on curved granite corbels. Narrow chamfered cross beams. To right, C19 inserted winder stair. There is a solid wall between the hall and the inner room to left. The inner room is at higher floor level, with 3-bay ceiling, with very large, deep-chamfered beams with run-out stops. Cross beams are slightly dressed, some renewed in C19. C20 fireplace to gable end stack. Windows in front wall have deep splayed reveals. The ground floor granite windows are hollow- chamfered on the inside. At first floor, the feet of the principals are visible, not chamfered. Rest of roof space not accessible; the stair tower has been closed off, at ground and first floor. Trethevy Cottage, like Trethevy Farmhouse, (q.v.), must have been a house of substantial size and high status, with good quality detail; they are in an isolated position, and it is unusual in this area of Cornwall to find 2 houses of this size in close proximity, the Cottage built shortly after the Farmhouse.
