The house originated c.1850. It was approximately square in plan and had a small central porch at the NW side. In 1894 it was greatly enlarged for John Evans with a new porch at the NE side and with outer wings at the NW and SE terminating in advanced bowed ends. The architect for the improvements was William Thomas, Pembroke Borough Surveyor. John Evans' monogram and the dates 1644 and 1894 are incorporated in the mosaic of the NE entrance porch.


Two storeys, facing NE, with a three-window centre block and outer bowed ends. Symmetrical cemented fa├žade with solid parapets and band course. Balustered upstand over centre. Slate roofs with moulded chimney-stacks behind parapets. 12-pane sash windows in plain reveals, marginal glazing and French windows to the ground floor of the bows. Solid central porch with terracotta balustrades and capitals to paired pilasters. Left bow with fine cast-iron verandah by Macfarlane's foundry of Glasgow, scrolled decoration to openwork handrail and spandrels.


The house retains the plan-form of hall plus library flanked by drawing and dining rooms to the ground floor. The arched surrounds in the hall plus the white marble fireplace in the library are retained from the house of c.1850. Throughout the rest of the house is good late-C19 detailing, including timber fittings and plasterwork cornices; the full-height chimneypiece in the hall is dated 1896.

Reasons for Listing
