The hall is to left of the passage, heated by a front lateral stack; the chamber above the hall is heated from an axial stack to the left. To the rear of the hall, there is a double stair tower, each stair entered through its own door; this appears to be all of one build and is most unusual; between the 2 stairs is a small closet room at ground and first floor. The room to end left is heated by a gable end stack. A 2- storey porch to the front of the passage. To the rear of the lower end room to right is a dairy outshut, unheated, and probably of the later C17.

The hall is to left of the porch, with external stack and small window to right at ground floor, an 8-pane light with timber lintel with scroll stops. 2-light casement at ground and first floor to left of the stack. The end room to left has 2-light casement at ground and first floor and C20 half glazed door with timber lintel. Left end rendered, with external stack and buttresses, probably of C19. Right end has large buttress to right supporting the stair within, and 2 casements at first floor. At the rear, behind the lower end room, is a single storey unheated lean-to with asbestos slate roof, formerly at slightly higher roof level. The double stair tower forms a wide central porch; to the left, a recess under the treads of the stair, and at first floor an unglazed 2-light casement with wooden mullion and iron stanchions, rough timber lintel. To right, at ground and first floor, single light C20 windows lighting the closets. To the right, a similar recess under the stair to right, both recesses with C20 doors. The right side of the stair tower has a single C20 light. Rear of lower end has no windows. Interior: The passage has a slate floor, chamfered beams and moulded cross joists; front door has draw bar sockets, chamfered lintel with scroll stops; same lintel to rear passage door. The wall to the hall to left is a stud partition, solid masonry wall to the lower end to right. Draw bar sockets also to rear passage door. The lower end room to right has 2 steps down to a lower. Wide fireplace to end, with timber lintel and cloam oven to rear left. To left of the fireplace, a domed recess in the wall, granite lined. The doorway to the lower end room has wide 4-centred arched head, chamfered with run-out stops, and flat lintel, chamfered with scroll stops; early C19 4-panelled door with stops, and flat lintel, chamfered with scroll stops; early C19 4-panelled door with ventilation holes. The hall is to left of the passage; 4 chamfered and scroll stopped cross beams; the small window beside the fireplace has chamfered and scroll stopped lintel. Fireplace to front lateral stack has flat chamfered granite lintel. In the rear wall are 2 doors to the stairs, both early C19 4-panelled door with ventilation holes. The hall is to left of the passage; 4 chamfered and scroll stopped cross beams; the small window beside the fireplace has chamfered and scroll stopped lintel. Fireplace to front lateral stack has flat chamfered granite lintel. In the rear wall are 2 doors to the stairs, both in wood, with 4-centred arch, chamfered with run- out stops, both lintels with scroll stops. In the middle of the rear wall is a timber lintel, possibly from a former opening, used later as a cupboard, with one C18 shaped shelf remaining. At ground floor, the closet between the stairs has a recess in the wall to each side with slate cills. Both stairs are wide winders with stone treads; the stair lights have lintels with scroll stops. 2 steps up to inner room at left end, with similar 6-centred arched wooden doorway, 6 chamfered cross beams and coffin hatch. Fireplace to end wall, flat granite unchamfered lintel remaining with rubble jambs, oven to rear right. At first floor, there is a half-landing leading to the chamber over the porch; this has similar 4-centred arched wooden doorway; the closet between the stairs has a doorway with flat timber lintel, chamfered with scroll stops, and 4-centred arch over. The chamber over the hall has a fireplace to the axial stack, with flat chamfered granite lintel and jambs and pyramid stops; rear closet to this room. Chamber at left end partitioned in C20. Roof not inspected, said to have been completely renewed at time of thatching. The front and rear walls of Treduan Farmhouse are of equal thickness; it is possible that the front lateral stack and the rear double stair tower are additions after the original build, but the double stair tower itself appears to be all of one build. At first floor there is a heavy timber wall plate by the stair to rear left; this may indicate alterations when the stair tower was built. The first floor fireplace over the hall is a later addition of the later C17. The internal features are of high quality.
