History

Later C18 farmhouse with later extensions. Deeds held in Flintshire County Record Office suggest C18 house constructed by 1763. Adjacent to a medieval moated site which suggests possible earlier origins. Large modern extension at right angles.

Those to the ground floor have cambered heads and transoms, 3-light to left and 2-light to right, both 2-light to 1st floor. C19 porch to original six-panel door. Extensive rear C20 two-storey extension of three bays and single-storey lean-to.

Reasons for Listing
