Farmhouse, subdivided. Circa mid C17 extended and remodelled in circa early C18, subdivided in circa mid to late C19 and restored in late C20. Granite rubble with large dressed granite quoins and lintels, whitewashed at rear. Grouted scantle slate roof with granite coping to gable ends with shaped kneelers and early crested ridge tiles. Large granite stack at left hand gable end with weathering and tapered cap; brick shaft to right hand gable end stack and to rear lateral stack. Plan: Probably a 3-room and through or cross passage plan; the lower end to the left was the kitchen heated from a gable end stack, the hall has a rear lateral stack and the large inner room was probably a parlour heated from a gable end stack. In circa early C18 outshuts were added at the back and it was probably then that the passage between the hall and kitchen was replaced by a stair hall inserted between the hall and inner room. In circa mid to late C19 the house was divided into 2 and a second staircase put in the outshut behind the hall. Exterior: 2-storeys. Long asymmetrical 4 window range. All the windows at the front are late C20 with top opening lights. The passage doorway to the left of centre has been blocked and a new doorway with a late C20 glazed door has been inserted to the right of centre into the higher end of the hall. At the back the outshut to the right has a lower roof and one small C19 single fixed light window of 6 panes. The outshut to the left has 2 late C19 2-light casements and a C20 plank door between. Interior: On the ground floor there are some early C18 6-panel doors, some with fielded panels. On the first floor there are fielded 2-panel doors. The kitchen has a large open fireplace with a bracketted shelf and exposed soft wood rafters. The hall has an early C20 mahogany chimney-piece and the inner room's fireplace has been rebuilt in the C20. The late C19 straight staircase at the higher end has turned balusters and newel. The mid to late C19 staircase in the outshut has stick balusters and turned newels. On the first floor there are C18 plank and muntin partitions. Roof: C20 soft wood kind-post trusses. In 1649 Edward Tremayne, Lord of the monor of Carwythenach, held Trevassack which was 2 holdings of 29 and 14 acres. Source: Charles Henderson.
