Meadowside, Trewint near Altarnun

The existing cottage at Meadowside had been Grade 2 listed in 1988, yet needed much attention to preserve the historic nature of it.  The proposal was to bring it back into use with a respectful restoration, complimented by two similar thatched cottages.

Listing details:

House: Probably early C17. Stone rubble. Corrugated asbestos roof with gable ends, probably originally replacing thatch, the top of the left hand gable end wall capped with rag slates. Stone rubble end stack with slate strings. 

Plan: Two room plan with entrance to right of centre, leading directly into larger left hand room which is heated by an end stack. Smaller unheated room on right.  Circa C19 service wing on left hand end extending to rear, heated by stone rubble end stack.

Exterior: Two storeys. Almost symmetrical 2-window front. Entrance slightly to right of centre with square headed chamfered and stopped granite door frame. Large circa C19 stone rubble porch in front with corrugated asbestos roof. C20 2-light casement to left and 1 light window to right. Two 2-light casements with glazing bars removed on first floor, the left hand window a half dormer with raked slate roof. End wall of service wing on left hand side.

Interior: Wany chamfered floor-joists. C20 grate to fireplace. First floor not inspected.
