The house was built as the rectory for the church at Llanelian on glebe land, c1832-40. It ceased to be a rectory C1980.


Well coursed and roughly squared local shale, with tooled limestone dressings including flat-arched window heads, and slate roofs with end wall stacks. 2-storeys, the house is planned with the entrance and stair hall in a rear wing between a main range (to the E) housing the principal rooms, and a parallel rear range housing study and kitchen. Further service accommodation is housed in an additional lean-top wing to S, with stable, coach house and cow house beyond. Entrance beneath lean-to verandah roof in the N side (the porch itself a recent additon), with chamfered stone architrave. 12-pane sash window above. Main front faces E, and is a 2-window range with tripartite sash windows to ground floor, 12-pane sashes above.


Wide entrance and stair hall divides the principal living rooms to the E from the study and service accommodation to the W. Most of the original joinery survives including fine plain spindle stair case panelled doors and rebates, panelled window shutters and aprons. The original fire-surrounds also survive in most rooms: these are stone, with stylised swags in high relief. Several retain the original enriched cast iron rectangular hob grates.

Reasons for Listing
