Cottage, earlier C19, part of the group of cottages built on encroached common land N of Plas-yn-Rhiw. Marked on 1842 Rhiw Tithe Map.
Cottage, whitewashed rubble stone with slate roofs, partly grouted. Whitewashed end stacks with dripstones. Single storey and loft, double fronted with ledged door between two C20 plate glass windows. Stone slab lintels. Altered outbuilding to left with slightly lower grouted slate roof and C20 window. Addition to right, C20 with taller roof and projecting front.
Included despite alterations as part of the compact and largely complete group of encroachment cottages on this still uncultivated hillside. As a group they form one of the best examples regionally of the process of settling marginal land in the C19.
