Erected in the early C20 as the lodge to Caerberis Manor, and as an eye catcher beside the original Irfon Bridge, which was demolished c1936.


A Jacobean style lodge on a steep riverbank site, comprising a main wing of one and a half storeys with its gable facing the front, behind which is a lower rear wing at right angles of 2 storeys, its lower storey level with the basement of the main wing. Rendered walls are enriched with timber framing, on a coursed rock-faced lower storey and plinth. The roofs are clay tiles with a brick stack to each wing.

The gable end facing the front has coursed rock-faced stone to the lower storey, with timber framing above, and windows with wooden mullions. It has a canted 3-light bay window in the lower storey and 2-light oriel above, the gable being supported by the bay window and projecting on end brackets. The entrance is in an outshut on the L side of the gable end and faces Golf Links Road. It has a porch with dwarf stone wall and fluted shaped wooden posts and hipped roof. Inside the porch is a half-lit panelled door. In the side wall is a V-shaped window on a scrolled bracket lighting the entrance hall, above which is a 2-light roof dormer. The rear wing projects in front of the outshut and has a 3-light mullioned window in its upper storey. On the R side the main wing has an external stone stack, with brick upper section, beyond which is a small casement. The rear wing projects forward but not as far as on the L side. In its lower storey is a 3-light window under a segmental stone head, while the upper storey has a 2-light oriel. The gable is timber framed. The rear, facing a small back yard, has a lean-to, to the R of which are rear window and boarded door under segmental brick heads.


A small entrance hall leads to stairs, which has flights up to attic of main range and the upper storey of the rear wing, and down to the basement of the main range and lower storey of the rear wing. The square moulded balusters and newels are similar to but simpler than the main stairs at Caerberis Manor. Panelled doors throughout.
