1/319 Gregwartha Manor Farmhouse -

GV II

Farmhouse. Circa late C18. Elvan ashlar front with dressed granite lintels, otherwise granite rubble with granite lintels. Grouted scantle slate roof with brick chimneys over the gable ends and over cross wall towards the right. Plan: Originally 3 rooms deep on the left and 2 rooms deep on the right all under one roof plus lean-to at left-hand end. Original plan was a farmhouse on the left with 2 front rooms with cross passage between leading to stair hall and shallow service room on its left; behind this on the left was a pantry or dairy with a doorway leading into the farmyard. Blocked doorway at rear probably gave access to the farmhouse. At rear right of is what appears to have been a self-contained 1-room plan cottage and there are 2 similar cottages back to back on the right. Plan is slightly remodelled in the C20 but the house seems to have been built or remodelled to accommodate a farmhouse and a number of self-contained cottages all within a rectangular plan. House stair has a borrowed light to receive light from a rear chamber window. At far left is a lean-to former washhouse with a tunnel leading off into the hillside on its left. The tunnel is long and cranked on plan and is excavated into solid granite. The purpose of the tunnel may have been for storage of perishable food, possibly an ice-house. Exterior: 2 storeys. Overall regular 5 window south-west front. On the left the front is symmetrical 3 window farmhouse front with central doorway and on the right is a 2 window front of former cottage with blocked doorway on its left and blocked window over. C20 door possibly original 16-pane hornless sashes. One window has old bull's eye panes. Rear has some possibly original 12-pane hornless sashes and some horned copies. Interior: Slightly altered in the C20 but retains the principal structural features. Dog-leg stair may be early C19 with later newel post.
