Trewartha is likely to date much further back than it first appears, according to the recently revealed monolithic paired arched window built into its south wall which could be medieval. But it is essentially a 19th Century amalgamation of two separate dwellings, making one exquisite Cornish farmhouse.

Formerly the residence of Michael and Romi Behrens, it has been sensitively ‘refreshed’ so that it’s  many original features have been gently enhanced and none of them lost. These include original early panelling, beams, doors, windows, low ceilings and lintels, flooring, wallpaper and hardware. A soothing floral and foliage mural, painted by the celebrated interior decorator Adam Calkin can be admired while lounging in one of the cast iron roll top baths. The granite threshold is worn away by the generations of hobnailed boots entering and departing this very atmospheric house, its name proudly announced in contrasting cobbles that make up its front entrance. On the west side a newly laid granite cobbled yard maintains the standard set by the farming families who have lived here over the last two centuries. They may be delighted to note that their courtyard barns look almost the same as they ever did when full of hay, cows and calves, not butchered by an unsuitable conversion to residences. The surrounding fields to the west are grazed by dairy cows.

All the pictures are original works of art, many painted by Romi Behrens including portraits of a local constable and fisherman from the 1970s, landscapes and still lives.
