History

Farmhouse, probably with C18 origins as shown by the large end chimney. There is a record of a gentry house on the site in the C17 at Cwmydwr including David Evans, ancestor of George Evans who was created Baron Carbery in 1715. Marked on 1837 Tithe Map as part of the estate of Charles Bishop of Dolgarreg, Myddfai.

Exterior

Farmhouse and outbuilding in line, rubble stone, formerly whitewashed, with slate roof and large roughcast external end stacks, larger to right. Two storeys, double fronted originally but with added first floor centre window. First floor has small-paned casement pair window each side and single casement with brick sides to centre. Timber lintels to original windows, concrete lintel to centre window. Ground floor 12-pane sash each side of C20 glazed door, stone voussoirs to all three openings. Rear is whitewashed with outshut to right half.
