History

The house was built in 1853 by Hugh Robert Hughes, nephew to William Lewis Hughes, 2nd Baron Dinorben,who had died the previous year. It is the first element of his extensive building programme at Kinmel.

Three-light trefoil-headed painted stone windows to each floor, but 4-light on the N of the W range, facing the extensive view. Minimal bargeboards. Stone stack with battered top section, with yellow pots on the stack on the W gable. On the N side, a heraldic stone carving displaying the Hughes arms impaling Ravensworth, the Lewis arms omitted.

Reasons for Listing
