Farmhouse dated 1795, built for T. Evans, possibly remodelled in earlier C19.

Exterior

Cement-washed rubble stone with slate roof, and stone end stacks, larger to left. Flat eaves with paired scrolled brackets. Two-storey, three-window range of 6-pane horned sashes and C20 door, all with cambered heads, recessed stone voussoirs and raised keystones. Date plaque over door :

T Es
1795
Outshut rear against hillside. Left end lean-to cart-shed with cambered arch and three rows of dove-holes above.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as a good example of a traditional farmhouse, the best in the area. The bracketed eaves are more typical of the 1820s, though used in gentry houses, such as those by John Nash, in the 1790s.
