KENWYN SW 74 NW 3/178 Treheveras Farmhouse and adjoining - house II Farmhouse and adjoining house. Circa late C17. Painted rubble and cob, and render to front and some asbestos cladding (probably originally slatehanging) to part of rear wing. Timber lintels. Asbestos slate roofs of mainhouse with brick chimneys over gable ends, hipped-roofed wing to rear, right of middle with large external stone lateral stack with brick shaft to east wall, later lean-to in north west angle with brick chimney against original rear wall. Further roof at lower level over adjoining house, to right (east) of main house, with brick chimney over gable end right. Plan originally of irregular T with 2 front rooms of hall and parlour flanking wide entrance passage leading to central stair and with probably kitchen in rear wing at right angles with circa early C19 outshut inserted in north west angle. At about the same time a further house of 2 rooms wide was added to east possibly for extended family. Right-hand room of main house is now incorporated into this house. 2 storeys. Regular 4-window original south front plus 2-window later house to right. Original house has central 2-storey lean-to entrance porch with wide doorway and later top-glazed panel door with wide C19 2-light casement over. Small window openings to right of porch are probably C20 insertions. Original wide window openings to farther right and to left of porch. C20 metal windows to right, but old 20-pane hornless sash to ground floor left and circa early C19 3-light casement over with 6 panes per light. Later house has doorway to ground floor left and C20 window right but retains original 12-pane 2-light casements over. This garden front is really the rear. Other front (north) is symmetrical with central doorway and original 16-pane hornless sashes except C20 window to ground floor right. Rear of wing has circa early C19 hornless sash to middle and over. Lean-to, right, has doorway, left, with deeply recessed, (to form open porch), ledged door and 12-pane 2-light casement to right. Rubble north walling of wing and lean-to are integral but walling of wing is very thin and is probably just a facing against stud work. Left-hand and return walling is clad in asbestos sheeting. Interior has much original structure and detail including: muntin and plank partitions with alternate heavy and light muntins; cross beam and oak joist floor structure to entrance hall and wing; original L stair with closed string; square newel with stepped cap and widely spaced turned balusters; and to first floor are three 2-panel doors with fielded panels. Further features are probably hidden. Roof structure not inspected but said to be probably original. One of the least altered C17 houses in this part of Cornwall.
