Central range has slightly offset gabled stone and timber porch containing C20 half-glazed door with 3-light mullioned and transomed timber window immediately to its right; 3-light flat-roofed dormer with pediment to centre now has late C20 plastic windows. Each gable has 24-paned 4-light window on first floor with handed 3-light timber mullioned and transomed window and smaller window on ground floor; gabled porches on each return, left with boarded door in front wall of porch, right open to front with boarded door only to side wall of cottage, which is probably the original arrangement. Central range has prominent ridge stacks to left and right with stone bases and clustered brick diagonal shafts with moulded capping.
Interior not inspected at time of Survey.
Included as essentially unaltered late Victorian workers' housing forming a significant and distinctive component within the important C19 planned Estate village of Llandygai. The style of the cottages is typical of much of the estate's late C19 phase of workers' housing, that is of symmetrical composition, bold in its detailing and making good use, particularly in the slate hanging, of the most abundant and distinctive local material.
