rendered walls with stucco dressings; coursed limestone rubble: Welsh-slate and
old plain-tile roofs. Main range of 2 builds, much extended to rear. 2 storeys
and 3 storeys. 3 ashlar bays to right of front are taller, with storeybands,
moulded cornice and 12- and 6-pane sashes to the first and second floors;
rusticated ground floor has an arcade of 2 blind round-headed recesses flanking
a wide segmental archway containing an elaborately-framed depressed-arched sash
with flanking panels and a vertical-sliding external shutter. The carved
keyblocks, together with the rustication, band and cornice, are repeated in
stucco on the 2-storey 3-window range, to left, which is a later build and
contains plain 16-pane sashes plus the main entrance. Shallow-pitched hipped
slated roofs are concealed by plain parapets. To rear of the taller section, an
earlier rubble building, with a steep-pitched tiled roof, rises out of later
single-storey extensions; it is of 2 storeys plus attic and retains casement
windows. Interior not inspected.
