An estate lodge in the Tudor Gothic style built for the Pontypool Park estate in 1830-40 during the ownership of Capel Hanbury Leigh (1795-1861). It has has a small addition at the rear in the late C20 but is otherwise the least altered of the surviving examples of this lodge type. It was built as the home of the estate forester for Lasgarn Wood.
Built of squared coursed stone with Welsh slate roofs. Two storey rectangular block with a small one-and-a-half storey extension at the rear. Tudor Gothic style. The elevation to the road has three bays to the ground floor, with a window to the left, the entrance with a gabled porch in the centre and an external chimney stack on the wall face to the right. The window is a cross framed small paned casement with dripmould over, and there is another above the porch gable set in its own small eaves gable. To the right the stack has off-sets, a weathering above the eaves and paired polygonal shafts with a weathered cap. The gables have modern bargeboards without decoration. Either gable end has a window with dripmould as above, on each floor. The rear extension is in similar materials and character, but the joinery is modern and not reproduction.
The interior was not inspected at the time of resurvey (December 1996).
Included as an attractive and very little altered example of the lodges built in the Tudor Gothic style by the Pontypool Park estate during the ownership of Capel Hanbury Leigh.
