Farmhouse. Early - mid C19, with additions and alterations of later C19 and some C20
alterations. Roughcast stone rubble and cob. Slate roof with ridge tiles and gable
ends. Gable end stacks with brick shafts.
Plan: 2-room plan with central entrance, each room heated from a gable end stack.
Rear wing to right of 2-room plan, for service rooms, with dairies added at the rear
left in the angle to the main range. At the left end, a small addition of one-room
plan, unheated; this may have originally been used as a Methodist chapel for Gluvian
Exterior: 2 storeys, a symmetrical 3-window front. Central C20 door with flat hood
on posts. C19 12-pane sash to right and left. First floor has central 12-pane sash
with 16-pane sash to right and left, all with cambered brick arches, of C19. The
left end has single storey lean-to addition; at the front this has a pointed arched
2-light casement, and at the left side a similar pointed arched 2-light casement with
Y tracery, lattice glazing and some C19 stained glass. The right end of the house is
blind. To right is the 2-storey rear wing; this has two C19 4-pane sashes at first
floor, with 4-pane sash and C20 door at ground floor. The left side of the wing has
a stair tower, with 2-light casement of 6-panes each light and L hinges at upper
level, with cambered arch. Lean-to dairy to left with 2-light 8-pane casement and
single light at the inner side. The rear gable end of the wing has the visible
outline of an earlier rear wing; this was raised in height, probably in the late C19,
so the stack is not at the apex of the gable but rises from the slope of the roof.
Interior: Not inspected.
