Probably of C18 or earlier origin, the farm complex shown at Ty-hen on the 1839 Tithe Map is notably smaller than the present one, which is typical of the many model farms established by the Newborough Estate after c1850. The farmhouse itself has a mid-C19 front but appears to contain earlier fabric in the ranges to the rear.


Farmhouse. 2-storey, 2-room and central staircase main range to west, aligned roughly north-south, fronting 2-storey ranges (south longer) projecting at right-angles to east; lower gabled range behind north range. Roughly coursed rubblestone, mainly limewashed but cement rendered to front elevation; graded slate roofs, turnerised to front roof slope. 3-window front; 9-paned horned sashes to first floor, 12-paned to ground floor; central 4-panel door with narrow rectangular overlight under gabled timber porch; integral cement-rendered end stacks. Rear ranges also have integral end stacks, north range with single-storey lean-to attached to north wall forming part of rubblestone boundary wall to track.


Interior not accessible at time of Survey.
