History

Circa 1890 small country house, built for W M George (d.1890) or his son J P M George, probably by George Morgan of Carmarthen. The house was probably designed by George Morgan, architect of Carmarthen; similar in style to Glanolmarch, Llechryd. Morgan was the architect for the stables here and the farm-buildings at Croft Farm for J P M George in 1892. Similar stained glass panels are at Rhosygilwen and Glanolmarch.
