History

Built on a downhill platform site in the early-mid C17, with a later rear outshut. A farm occupying this site is shown on the Rees map of Wales.

Exterior

Built of sandstone rubble and pebbledashed, the farm range remaining as stone. Slate roofs. House of 1 storey and attic, 2 bays, with in-line contemporary stable and cowhouse. The house elevation to the S is symmetrical, probably early C19, with central boarded door under a pent roof, and to either side a 12-pane sash window with cambered heads and stone sills. Two raised gabled casement dormers light the upper floor. Part external added gable stack at the lower end, this gable being rendered. Attached, the stable with a wide door, and window, and a hayloft over, and the cowhouse, with boulder foundations at the upper end, has a central feeding walk, and stable doors each end, all openings with later yellow brick cambered heads. Paned window to the tallet over the cowhouse. The walls of the farm range were raised, probably in the early C19.

Interior

The house has its major stack at the upper end with a chamfered fire lintel, set against the stable wall, with an added stack to the lower parlour, which is divided off by a split oak lath partition. Pair of large 'A'-frame trusses with chamfered lower edges and trenched purlins. Chamfered tie beams and reed-moulded joists. Stone stair originally behind the stack, but now against the rear wall. Large chimney opening with stop-chamfered fire lintel and cast iron range. Rear dairy lean-to with stone floor and shelves.
The farm range has cross beams supporting the upper floor
