Gentry house of the late C18, remodelled in the early mid-C19. It was the home of Richard Jones, 1788, purser to the Royal Navy and philanthropist, and later of John Wilkes Poundley (1807-1872), the surveyor for Montgomeryshire from 1861. The road originally ran NW of the house, but was re-aligned after 1842 around the SE side to permit the laying out of the gardens.
Brick, laid in lime putty to Flemish bond, with slate roofs. The main range extend NE to SW with rear wings at the centre and at NE end extending to a later parallel range, and forming a reentrant garden on the SW leading to the service yard. Two storeys and cellars, the main range 5 bays long, symmetrical, the centre bay set forward, and having an added porch, mid-later C19, with a central 6-panelled door flanked by paired brick pilasters, stone cornice and stone ball finials raised on blocks. The upper window is round headed. The two bays either side have C19 4-pane windows in openings with rubbed flat brick arches. Boxed eaves. Brick stack central and external to each gable end. The E gable end is painted, with a tripartite door under a 3-centred brick arch with keystone.
Not accessible at time of inspection (February 1996).
Included as a well preserved gentry house, finely detailed and proportioned in a simplified Neo-Classical style.
