8/28 Higher Treglidgwith House - II

House, originally a farmhouse. Dated 1799, restored in C20. Granite rubble with dressed granite quoins, lintels and cills. Steeply pitched thatched roof with gable ends, shaped granite kneelers and plain granite coping. C20 red brick stacks over the gable ends. Plan: Double depth plan with 2 principal front rooms heated from gable end stacks and an entrance passage between the 2 rooms. The left hand room is larger and probably originally the parlour and the smaller right hand room must have been the kitchen. At the back there were 2 shallow unheated rooms. In the C20 partitions between the front and back rooms were removed and the staircase which may have originaly been situated between the 2 front rooms was replaced by a staircase at the back of the right hand room. The single storey addition at the right hand end was also added in C20. A circa C18 cottage situated diagonally across the rear right hand corner has been incorporated into the accommodation. Exterior: Symmetrical 2 window range. C20 2-light casements with glazing bars, granite lintels and cills. Central doorway with an unchamfered granite lintel inscribed "C.M. 1799" in upper case with serifs. C20 glazed door and large C20 glazed porch, with a thatched hipped roof. Asymmetrical rear elevation has C20 2-light casements with glazing bars. The circa C18 cottage across the rear right hand corner is of whitewashed granite rubble with a slate gable-ended roof with a dressed granite stack on the right hand end. Interior: The left hand room has a fireplace with a massive granite chamfered lintel and jambs; the lintel is too long for the fireplace and seems to be reused. The right hand room has a very large fireplace with a massive unchamfered granite lintel, unchamfered granite jambs and an oven in the right hand side. C20 exposed soft wood joists and C20 soft wood partitions. Roof: The roof structure is said to have been replaced in C20. Treglidgwith was in the manor of Treworval. In 1842 Higher Treglidgwith was a holding of 57 acres which belonged to Thomas Medlyn. Therefore, C.M. inscribed on the doorway lintel suggests that C. Medlyn held Higher Treglidgwith in 1799.
