Front has 4-paned sashes with slate cills on each floor flanking central C20 boarded door with glazed top; integral end stacks with slate drips. Full-length asbestos-sheet roofed lean-to on rear.


Interior not accessible at time of Survey.

Reasons for Listing

Included as a largely unaltered house built c1850 in the local vernacular tradition but displaying a number of polite features. The house is one of the larger buildings in Rhiwlas, pre-dating its later C19 expansion as a slate-quarrying village, by which time it was a public house.
