MICHAELSTOW SX 07 NE 6/110 Tregawn - 19.1.52 II

Farmhouse. Circa C15 partly remodelled in late C16. Stone rubble with granite quoins, the front wall on left partly rebuilt above first floor level and the left hand side wall partly rebuilt with fine quality masonry towards the front comprising ashlar granite with slate galetting. Slate roof with hipped ends on left and gable end on right continued in catslide roof over rear outshot. Hipped end to rear wing and lower slate roof with hipped end to extension on right. Circa late C16 or early C17 reduced granite moulded stack with C20 brick shaft in right hand gable end and brick stack on left hand hipped end. Tall moulded granite circa late C16 or early C17 rear lateral stack to hall. Brick stack to rear outshot and stone rubble and brick side lateral stack to rear wing. Plan: The original plan is uncertain. The house comprises a 2 room plan with wide passage, the larger right hand room heated by a rear lateral stack and the smaller left hand room by an end stack. 2 storey rear wing to rear of passage heated by side lateral stack. Extension of 1 room plan on right heated by an end stack and later circa C18 outshots across rear elevation containing service rooms. Because of limited evidence the development of the plan is not clear. The wing, to the rear of the passage and lower side of the hall contains 2 circa C15 trusses which may be smoke blackened, the end truss on rear (north east) its principals and collar incised with carpenters marks '1 1 1 1'. On the lower side of the hall the passage screen has been replaced in circa early to mid C19. The bressummer above is chamfered, the stops buried. Heavy timber circa C17 framed partition above. The hall roof structure was replaced in circa early C18 and then partly renewed in early C19. There are several joists with multiple mouldings which have been reused in the attic of the rear wing; these may either be moulded purlins of a high quality roof (now gone) or alternatively may have been the moulded floor joists to the first floor. There is a thick wall on the lower side of the passage which continues up to the apex probably indicating the addition of the left hand room. In the right hand gable end of the main range is a blocked C17 timber door frame to the side of the first floor fireplace; this may either indicate that the house continued to the right and that the 1-room extension on the right hand gable end is on the site of the earlier inner room or alternatively a blocked turreted stair may be positioned in the gable end. Exterior : 2 storeys. Regular 4 window front with segmental dressed stone arches to ground floor openings. C20 glazed door, wide C19 6-panel door its fanlight with glazing bars to left of centre and 2 tall early to mid C19 hornless 12-pane sashes to right. First floor has 4 early to mid C19 hornless 12-pane sashes. Lower range to right has )lazed double doors and a horned 12-pane sash to right. Rear elevation: rear wing has an ovolo moulded timber lintel above the ground floor window and the outshot to rear of the hall has a 2-light granite mullion window surround, the mullion removed. Interior : Slate and granite flag floors. Wide passage with C19 open-string stair inserted on higher side. The screen has been replaced with a circa late C18 or early C19 timber screen with scratch moulded stiles. Hall fireplace in rear lateral stack has hollow chamfered granite lintel and jambs. Rear wing heated by side lateral stack, the fireplace partly remodelled in late C20 and has at least 1 cloam oven. First floor: chamfered timber C17 door frame to blocked opening adjoining fireplace in right hand gable end. In extension on right, hollow chamfered granite surround to fireplace. Roof structure: Rear wing has 2 circa C15 trusses which have slight patchy evidence of smoke-blackening. The principals which have pronounced curved feet forming raised cruck trusses, are morticed at the apices and apparently originally without a ridge piece although later timbers conceal the original structure. The high cranked unmoulded collars are morticed and pegged with 4 pegs. The 2 sets of purlins (now replaced) appear to have been deeply trenched. There are several multiple moulded joists reused on the attic floor of this rear wing. The roof structure above the left hand room is largely inaccessible but appears to have been replaced in the late C18. Above the hall are 2 circa late C17 or early C18 trusses which are halved, lapped and pegged at the apices with collars lapped onto the face of the principals. The other trusses have been replaced in circa early C19. Above the passage the attic floor joists are closely spaced and unmoulded, supported by the thick wall above the lower side of the passage and a tie-beam above the higher side.
