Llanharan House was built by Rees Powell before 1750 and was subsequently enlarged by Richard Hoare Jenkins in the early C19, with additions by the Blandy-Jenkins family later in the C19. The park and garden, S and W of the house respectively, were laid out by Rees Powell in the C18 but the present structural components were added in the period 1856-75 by John Blandy-Jenkins. By 1875 the upper terrace had taken its present form and in its semi-circular projection was a sundial.


Comprising a low rubble-stone revetment wall with flat-coped parapet on the downhill side. In the centre is a semi-circular projection. Toward the E end is a raised stone bed, above which the parapet is built with apertures for climbing plants, L of which are stone steps from lower to upper terrace. Similar stone steps are on the W side and have rock-faced stone flanking wall, in which there are square piers with ball finials to a path from the lower terrace. The flanking wall continues to a doorway in the lower terrace wall.

The semi circular projection has a stone pineapple on a plinth, replacing the earlier sundial. A return wall at the E end is integral with the rear wall of the terrace built to retain the bank behind. This is also of rubble stone and has 3 low segmental arches (one of which is blocked) and a low niche, of uncertain purpose. Towards the W end the rear wall is brick, and returns on the W side where it is continuous with the brick E wall of the former kitchen garden.
