Appears on Mynyddiswlyn Tithe Map 1846 as an L-shaped building; datestone which is not wholly legible appears to suggest a 1850s date for at least part of the building.

Roughly T-shaped plan. Frontage has a 3 window range to the main range with 10-pane casements and a swept lead verandah/awning to ground floor with central doorway; cross wing is one bay wide to front and 2 bays to side, all with 16-pane horned sashes with narrow glazing bars and shallow reveals, square hoodmoulds and a small round arched landing window with radial glazing bars between first floor windows to side. Rear elevation has 9-pane sash windows with slightly cambered heads and wider surrounds to first floor, non-matching sashes and casements to ground floor. Outbuilding attached to side with corrugated roof and chimney has arched opening at lower level to front and outside steps to first floor to rear.
