The Minister's house was built next to the Baptist chapel in about 1840. It was built separately as the straight joint shows, but it must be very nearly contemporary.
Squared but uncoursed red sandstone rubble with dressed quoins and heads to the openings, Welsh slate roof. Small single depth double fronted house with central entrance. Plank door, flanked by 2-light windows with moulded central mullion, the windows are shuttered and glassless, but this is because the house is currently unoccupied (May 1997). The upper floor has two small cross framed wooden casements. Low pitch roof with tiled ridge and square gable stacks. The gable wall is plain, the rear wall blind, the stair window being hidden by one of the two small extensions which are presumably for modern sanitary facilities.
Interior not available for inspection at the time of resurvey (May 1997).
Included together with the attached chapel for its special interest as an unaltered earlier C19 rural chapel and minister's house.
