Earlier C19 gentry house, said to have been used as vicarage in C19. House is marked on 1842 tithe map, without outbuildings, as owned and occupied by the Rev. John Hughes. Previous farm was on drive below and is identified as main house on 1838 schedule to Tithe Map, suggesting that new house may have been built between 1838 and 1842, though it looks more of the 1820s.
