A late C17 farmhouse altered and extended c.1830 by Sir Robert Williames Vaughan of Nannau, Bart., as part of his campaign of estate improvements.

Central entrance to N side with modern door. Modern window to L and further modern windows to 2 hipped dormers above, the windows to which break the eaves. An arcaded hay barn formerly occupied the end bay towards the E gable. Its arched openings, 3 to the gable and single to the sides, are now enclosed, and the central and side ones glazed. Above, a former seed loft with similar arched window to the gable; all have plain labels. To the rear, a long 8-pane stair light, its top contained within a hipped dormer. Extruded corner to R (at junction with barn range) in the form of a Ty bach.
The barn range has an unglazed upper window to the N gable and 5 entrances to the long W side. Of these the first, second and fourth have modern boarded doors and the third is blocked; unglazed window above the second. To the far R modern garage doors with corrugated plastic glazing above. Entrance to E side with modern door.
