Built in 1799 by Rowland Williams on the site of an earlier farmhouse. Shown at the centre of a small park and approached by a tree-lined avenue on the tithe map of 1841. The park is now a housing estate.
Symmetrical 3-storey, 3-bay Georgian house. Roughcast, with hipped swept pan-tiled roof, and wide rendered end stacks. Central round-arched doorway with moulding and keystone. Inset C20 double doors under fan-light. Flanking windows are tripartite horned sashes with flat heads and stone sills. Twelve-pane horned sashes to 1st floor and similar 6-pane sashes to 2nd floor. Two-storey lean-to to rear.
No access to interior at time of inspection (26/2/99).
Listed as a good example of a Georgian house representing gentrification of the countryside. A relatively rare building type in this area.
