Documentary references date the building back to 1726 but, in its present form, the house is early C19 in character, in a style associated with the Penrhyn Estate which owned the property for a few years from 1813.


Stuccoed stone and brick, with a hipped slate roof. Two storeys, 'L'-plan. Main front is of 3 bays, with 2 further bays set back on the right. Central lattice porch to the main block over a half-glazed door, stepping down to house. Small pane sash windows with cusped and pointed glazing bars to the upper light, and stone label moulding. Slate sills and splayed recesses to the ground floor. The upper windows of the main block have raised hipped dormers with deep eaves. Central half-glazed door to the first floor formerly leading on to a railed verandah, the railings now removed. The right-hand part has one similar window to ground floor, the others altered, one blocked. Contemporary rain-water head. Slate hung left end with similar half-hipped gable end windows, tripartite to ground floor and 12-pane above. The rear is largely pebbledashed and has a modern lean-to structure over almost the full width concealing a tripartite sash window. Rendered outer side and pebbledsashed gable to rear; the former includes 3 leaded casement windows, one with Gothic heads.


The interior retains the original plan and details, including a turned newel staircase.
