SW6627 TRESPRISON FARM 631-1/5/275 Nos.1, 2 AND 3 Tresprison Cottages and attached forecourt walls and railings

II

Two attached houses and attached cottage. C18 houses, early C19 cottage. Coursed Elvan rubble walls with flat Elvan arches to No.1 (left), granite quoins; oak lintels to No.2 except for granite lintel to later doorway; steep corrugated iron roof (replacing former thatch), scantle slate to cottage and corrugated asbestos to outshuts; Elvan ashlar end stacks to original houses, brick stack on right and brick stacks at rear. Single-depth plan plus later 1-room-plan cottage on the right and later rear outshuts. At some time the houses have been converted to 4 cottages but now probably reverted to being 2 houses but all empty at the time of survey. 2 storeys; overall 7-window range. Houses originally with symmetrical 3-window fronts with central doorways, now with extra doorway to front of each, left of original doorways; 4-panel doors to Nos 1 & 3; original mid C19 twelve-pane hornless sashes to No.3 and to right of No.2, otherwise C20 windows in original openings (probably originally horizontal-sliding sashes with thick glazing bars). INTERIOR not inspected but likely to retain original structural features and original carpentry and joinery. Subsidiary features: original rubble and earth hedge and gateways with granite monolithic piers to original houses and original mid C19 granite ashlar forecourt wall and iron railings in front of cottage (No.3). These two C18 houses, built as a near pair, are an unusual building type of this date in Cornwall.
