History

Small-scale detached house built in 1937 by H.L. North, architect of Llanfairfechan, possibly for a Mrs Darling; the contractor was Frank Tyldesley of Llandudno.

In front of the entrance is a contemporary flight of 5 brick steps leading to a garden path. To the L of the entrance a large, recessed, tripartite metal-framed casement window with small panes. To the R are 2 small, square 4-pane windows. Twelve-pane casement window to elegant first-floor eyebrow dormer above entrance; to the R, under the eaves, a triple 4-pane window with square 4-pane beyond. Further 12-pane casement to W side, with small window beyond and modern door and window to R.
