Attached to the front and the left side of this wing there is an open-fronted shed, probably of C19. At the left end there is a single storey outshut, continued to rear left behind the upper end room.

Attached to the front end of the wing is an open-fronted shed with two doorways; this is continued as a lean-to along the left side of the wing. The right end of the house has a single storey lean-to with C19 2-light 4-pane casement at the front. This lean-to is continued around the rear of the house, behind the lower end room, as the dairy, with plank door at the right side and 2-light 4-pane casement at the rear. The left end of the house has external stack, with 16-pane sash at ground floor to left and 20-pane sash at first floor to left, of C19. There is a small single storey lean-to at the right. At the rear, the rear lateral stack is external, with a window inserted at the base of the stack. There is a single storey lean-to to right with a window at the inner side. At first floor to right there is a C20 window. Interior: The doorway to the cross passage now leads straight into the kitchen. This has a slate floor and end fireplace with C19 surround and mantel; formerly with a cloam oven. There is a service stair inserted in the rear of the room, with stick balusters. The front window has deep splayed reveals. The dairy outshut is to rear of the kitchen. The rear later corridor contains the rear lateral fireplace from the original hall, which has an inserted cloam oven, and contains a cupboard with door with LH hinges. The upper end room has C20 fireplace (rebuilt) and slate floor, the rear window with a window seat. The central hall has rear lateral fireplace, rebuilt in C20. In the front wing, the stair hall has tight open-well stair with stick balusters and rounded handrail. At first floor, the rooms are also partitioned with a rear lateral corridor. The roof over the main range is of C18, the principal rafters halved and crossed at the apex, with two rows of purlins resting on the backs of the principals and collars pegged to the sides of the principals. Tregarton Farmhouse was the Medieval residence of the Tregarthen family, which became extinct in 1503; in the C17 it belonged to the Trevanion family and later was owned for a time by the Tremaynes of Heligan in St Ewe.
