History

Probably built early-mid C19 incorporating earlier work in the picturesque style of the Trevalyn Estate buildings of Marford suggesting it may have had connections with the estate. C20 alterations.

Cottage Orne style. Render, slate roof, rendered chimneys, single storey and single storey with attic. Butterfly type plan. Entrance elevation consists of gabled ranges at right angles with a low flat-roofed porch set in the angles flanked on either side by lower 2-window ranges. Porch has dentil cornice and a central door with upper sidelights. Swept up roofs at the gable ends and gables have dentil cornices which return a short distance at eaves level to suggest a pediment. Rear elevation: the V shaped taller range has gabled dormer windows with dentil decoration, left hand side has an entrance with steeply gabled porch with dentil cornice. A door is situated in the low attached left hand range. All windows have been renewed and are leaded and multipaned, some in Gothic style.
