History

An earlier house was rebuilt in 1782, but some of its fabric may be retained within its core; in C18 and C19 it was known as the Crown Inn. The landlord in the Census returns of 1851 is recorded as Owen Richards, a retired shoemaker, who also farmed the adjoining 2 acres (0.8 hectares) of land. After his death, his son carried on the shoemaking business, employing 6 men; the trade run from the workshop to the side of the stable (demolished) - later converted to use as dairy.

The stable wing was in a ruinous condition at the time of the previous listing survey in 1966, re-roofed and converted into accommodation in the 1990s.

Exterior

Two-storey house, formerly a public house, with single storey converted stable block to R (SE). Built of roughly coursed masonry, predominantly of rounded boulders. Modern slate roof with stone copings and small rooflights in the rear (NE) pitch, the house has tall gable stacks with dripstones and capping. The principal elevation opens onto the street, a 3-window range with openings offset to R (SE) under stone lintels. The doors are modern, the house has horned sash windows; most are 16-pane lights, the ground floor window to L of the doorway a larger 20-pane window. The rear wall has scattered fenestration of small casement windows and stair window between units.

In alignment to the R (SE) is a single-storey wing, the former stables, of similar construction; there are small rooflights in the front pitch of the roof. The principal elevation is a single window range, the doorway to R and a single modern casement window of 2 lights to L. At the SE gable there is an external flight of stone steps up to the former loft doorway, now with a modern glazed door.

Interior

The interior was not inspected at the time of the survey.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a good and well preserved late C18 house, a characteristic regional type which retains much original character, particularly with the retention of the fenestration. Forms a group at the centre of the village of Llanfair with the adjacent church and Ty Mawr.
