Built probably in the early C19, and remodelled and improved by the Glynllifon estate (Lord Newborough) in the later C19, when an extra bay was added. It was occupied by a farmer William Jones at the time of the 1849 tithe award when it consisted of a house, offices, yard, garden, with 9 acres (3.64ha) of arable, 2 (0.8ha) of pasture and 3 (1.2ha) of meadowland. An L-shaped range of farm buildings with a raised walk stands apart on the right.


A small single storey 2-bay farmhouse built of rubble, with a slate roof between imposed copings, single rooflight to front, and gable stacks. Central bead-battened door with a narrow overlight set in a gabled porch, and on either side, 3-light casement windows with small panes. The house has been extended to the right by 1 bay, pebbledashed, with a similar window. Large rear service wing with the kitchen, under a low-pitched asbestos lean-to roof.


The front door leads to a through passage to the rear kitchen. Four-panelled doors to the main front living rooms, that on the right with a large fireplace. The addition is divided into 2 small rooms.
