TINTAGEL SX 08 NE 4/153 Halgabron House, including Cartwheel Cottage on right GV II Farmhouse now divided into house and cottage. Circa C16 remodelled in mid C19. Slate-stone rubble. Regular C19 slate roof with C19 crested ridge tiles continuing in rag slates over inner room on right; parallel range on front with C19 slate roof and C19 crested ridge tiles; main range with gable end on right. The C19 parallel range added across the front on the left has a gable end on the right. The cross wing to left has a gable end to front and hipped end to rear. Large stone rubble stack on higher right hand gable end with cloam oven projection. Brick axial hall stack backing onto passage to left of centre, brick axial stack to cross wing on left, probably originally a front lateral stack heating service room prior to C19 remodelling; rendered brick lateral stack to cross wing. Plan : original arrangement altered during C19 remodelling. Possibly a 3 room and through passage plan with stone rubble cross walls continuing up to apex on higher side of passage and on higher side of hall between hall and inner room. The quite large inner room on right heated by a gable end stack has a stone newel stair in a stair turret on the front elevation; this gave access solely to the chamber above the inner room. The hall is heated by an axial stack which backs onto the through pasage with a stair in a shallow gabled projection to the rear of the hall, towards the higher end on right. The lower end has been considerably remodelled and was probably heated by a front lateral stack, enclosed by later addition. In circa mid C19 the house was considerably remodelled: the higher inner room on right has remained comparatively unaltered but has an outshot added across to rear. Across the front of the hall a parallel extension of 1 room depth was added to accommodate a stair hall with a C19 porch added in front of the entrance. At the lower end, the service room was remodelled and extended to form a cross wing on the front of the lower room containing a further reception room heated by a side lateral stack and a service room to the rear. The roof timbers above the inner room were probably replaced in the C18 and those above the lower end in the C19. The roof structure above the hall was not accessible at time of survey. In circa C20 the inner room was divided from the hall to form a separate cottage. 2 storeys: asymmetrical 7:1 window front with mid C19 fenestration. Gabled end to cross wing on left and inner room set back from C19 extensions on right. Canted bay window in cross wing on left with sashes. C19 canted timber porch with flat slate roof, segmental arched openings and fielded panelling. C19 stair window with margin glazing bars, horned 12 pane sash and C20 glazed door to right. First floor has 3 sashes in canted bay window and 3 hornless 12-pane sashes. Set back to right, the inner room, now Cartwheel Cottage with stair projection on left, C20 glazed door and C20 fire window with C20 window on first floor. Rear elevation has asymmetrical 4 window front with C19 sashes and casements. Stair projection infront of hall to left of centre adjoining 2 storey bay projection of inner room and hipped end to cross wing on right. C20 extension in angle between cross wing and main range, to rear of through passage. Interior : remodelled in C19. Cartwheel Cottage, originally the inner room has a timber and slate newel stair in the projection with C20 fireplace, C19/C20 ceiling beams and although the roof structure was not fully accessible the collars are lapped and pegged onto the face of the principals indicating that the roof structure was possibly replaced in the C18. The chamber above the lower end has C19 plaster moulded cornice. The hall and roof structure above the hall was not accessible at time of survey.
