Built in 1696 as a small mansion and a farmhouse until C1985 when it was extensively restored and extended as offices as the centre-piece of Wrexham Technology Park.
Brick with some stone dressings including plinth and angle quoins, and hipped slate roofs. 2 storeyed with attics and cellar, a shallow U-plan, with entrance facing W, and wings enclosing small courtyard to E. Symmetrical entrance fronts of 5 bays, the outer 2 bays to either side very slightly advanced under hipped roofs which form a continuation of the main roof-line. Central entrance up steps in bolection moulded doorcase, the window above the door in stressed architrave. Windows, which are sashes (and were possibly sashes from the outset), have flat arched stone heads with decorative keyblocks. Stone mullioned windows in basement, and 2 hipped dormer windows in the roof. Return and rear elevations mainly have mullioned and transomed windows, with sashes in return of front rooms only. Side entrances give access to hallways at foot of staircase to each side within, and the stairs are lit by a mullioned and transomed window at intermediate height.
Entrance hall occupies central range, with principal rooms to each side. Southern room has bolection moulded panelling, with dado, main panels and cornice, and ribbed plaster ceiling with 2 lozenge panels divided by a central beam. Dado panelling in room above this, and panelling with unmoulded rails in one rear upper room. Symmetry of plan encompasses 2 staircases set to either side in the angle of main range and rear wings, both rising the full height of the building. Principal stair to S has turned balusters, and moulded closed string.
Secondary stair to N has simpler detail.
The house is a fine example of late C17 work, and represents an early example of brick building in this part of Wales.
