Nantyderry station was built by the Newport, Abergavenny and Hereford Railway in 1854 and was worked at first by the London and North Western Railway. It became a part of the West Midland Railway in 1860 and the Great Western Railway in 1863. It closed in 1958 and was converted to a house; the line continues in use.


The building is constructed of squared snecked rock-faced sandstone blocks with a dressed band between the floors, Welsh slate roof. Two storey rectangular block with single storey lean-to wings on either gable. The entrance front has, from the left, a 2 over 2 pane sash in the wing, a 2 over 2 pane sash with horizontal division and an octagonal head to the main block, a plank door under a glazed Gothic porch, another window with shaped head as before, another plain sash as before and a small single light 'Norman' type window in the wing. The upper floor has a central gable with two sashes with shaped heads. Steeply pitched roof with tall end brick stacks.
