Small sub-Medieval, 2-bay hall house, probably late C16 to which a c. 1830-40 square farmhouse addition has been added; at this period the earlier house was converted to a cart house and brew/wash house. The C19 work belongs to a widespread building and estate improvements campaign undertaken by Sir Robert Williames Vaughan of Nannau, Bart. some of the buildings of which appear to have been inspired by or based on the published drawings of P.F. Robinson, architect of London.
The C19 house is of 2-storeys, constructed of rubble under a hipped slate roof; centralised plan with fine twin central stacks with moulded capping and weather-coursing. Gabled porch to S face with boarded door to E and arched window with label facing S. Modern flanking windows and further windows to the sides (one to each floor), that to the ground floor E blocked. 3 further windows to first-floor S, again with modern glazing. Boarded entrance to W side of N face at junction with primary wing; weather-coursing at their intersection.
The early block is a low building of rubble on rock foundations with a tall, old slate roof. Modern windows to W and E sides; External stepped access to N gable end, leading to an upper boarded door. To the R of this a wide, open cart entrance with exposed, re-used timber lintel.
The primary block is of three bays with full cruck trusses with pegged cruck spurs and a tie beam to the northern-most one; this with evidence for a former partition beneath, implying a former service bay in this position. Later roughly-scantled ceiling beams and a C19 rubble dividing wall through the centre of bay 2. Blocked primary windows to E and W expressed within, that to the W with timber lintel. C19 Washboiler with squat chimney expressed externally at the NE corner; old stone-flagged floor.
An early open cruck-framed hall with C19 estate farm addition.
