History

An early to mid C19 villa converted to a funeral home in the C20.

Exterior

A Regency 2-storey 3-bay house with stucco walls, hipped slate roof with wide plastered eaves to the front and side elevations, and end rendered stacks. In the lower storey is a central replaced panelled door with radial glazed iron overlight. The outer bays have French doors (now fixed). An upper storey cast iron balcony is supported on round posts with broad fillets and open fretwork cornice. The central posts have brackets projecting at cornice level, probably for bearing signs. The balustrade has thin rails and wave bars, with intermediate scrollwork. Three French doors open to the balcony.

Set back against the R end wall is an added 2-storey wing with single-storey lean-to in front continuous with the front elevation of the main range. In the L end wall is an inserted window lower L. A lower hipped-roofed rear wing is behind and projects from the L end wall of the main house.

Interior

Not inspected.

Reasons for Listing

Listed for its architectural interest as one of the few country villas that survived the urban expansion of Cardiff, retaining a particularly fine cast iron balcony.
