Between the 2 rooms there is an entrance passage leading to a dog-leg staircase at the back in the integral outshut. The outshut also contains the kitchen with a side stack behind the right hand room and a smaller dairy or pantry behind the left hand room. In the C20 a single storey extension was added to the rear right behind the kitchen. Exterior: 2 storeys. Almost symmetrical 3-window front.

Gilbert in his survey of Cornwall describes the since demolished mansion Carwythenack as "lately much improved and the plantation, walks and waterfalls considerably enlarged and beautified". Carwythenack farmhouse was probably built as part of these improvements. Carwythenack was formerly in Constantine parish before the parish boundaries were changed.
