Details

LUDGVAN CASTLE ROAD SW 43 SE 7/28 Treassowe Manor House (formerly - listed as Treassowe Farmhouse) 10.6.54 GV II Manor house. C17, incorporating earlier reused masonry, remodelled and extended in circa the early C19. Granite ashlar and granite rubble. Dry Delabole slate roof with gable ends. Rendered embattled chimney stacks (probably C17) over original gable ends towards the front. Plan: slightly irregular overall L-shaped plan, originally 1 room deep with 2 rooms at the front and with service range (or main range) at right angles behind the present right-hand front room. In circa the early C19, the front wall was partly rebuilt as a garden front; at probably the same time the plan was deepened making a double-depth plan under 1 roof. An axial passage behind the left-hand room leads from a large entrance porch (classical style with Tudor style doorway) to a central rear stair hall. Also the circa early C19 rear wing was reduced to or rebuilt as a single storey probably kitchen. There is a C17 rear entrance doorway to this kitchen near the inner angle and the room is lit by a C17 window. Formerly probably adjoining the right hand side of the kitchen and extending nearly parallel is a ruined circa late C19 range of domestic buildings with 3 large fireplaces and dressed coursed granite masonry. Some medieval dressed stone fragments survive in the garden. Exterior: 2 storeys. Symmetrical 4 window south-east garden front: ashlar plinth; circa early C19 12-pane hornless sashes. Set back on the left is an ashlar porch with 4 centred arched doorway to the front; and pilastered corners; and 12-pane hornless sash in the left hand wall. Circa early C19 sashes also at rear including tall round-headed stair sash. The left-hand wall of the rear wing has C17 3-light chamfered mullioned window, left and doorway right with reused medieval moulded pointed arch over circa late C16 or early C17 broad chamfered jambs with dice stops. Interior: not inspected.
