Probably C16. Baker's study of local houses in 1893 refers to possible evidence of an open roofed hall and mentions Thomas Lloyd in the early C16 as owner. It is one of the important houses of the vicinity mentioned in the Llyfr Silin of the late C17.

There is exterior evidence of timber framing. The house appears to have been converted to stone in the C16 and since then it has been considerably altered. The plan type is now lobby-entry, the main chimney appearing to have been inserted in a former cross passage, although the history is obscured by modern alterations at rear.


A 1½-storey L-shaped farmhouse in local slate masonry with slate roof, consisting of a main range and a left forward extending crosswing. The main range lies north/south and faces west to the farmyard. Irregular roof line with a large and tall stone double-stack chimney with C17 decorative ribs (capped in modern brick). A timber-framed cross-wall survives where the main range abuts the crosswing; a post of the same wall is visible at rear. The right gable is in brick. The rear retains its slate walling at left and right, but the middle part is rebuilt in different stone and brick.

Two-window front elevation including the slightly advancing gable to the left. Door in the angle of the wing opposite the chimney. C20 steel windows throughout. Large C20 flat-roofed dormer at right. Small iron framed top-hung light over the door.


Interior not seen, but said to retain some wattle and daub panelling, beamed ceilings and a wide fireplace.
