History

A schoolmasters' house probably contemporary with the school, a British School built in 1856 by John Lloyd, architect of Caernarfon. The house is shown on the 1888 Ordnance Survey.

Exterior

A 2-storey 3-window house of rubble stone with freestone dressings and quoins, and renewed slate roof with coursed stone end stacks. Windows were all boarded up at the time of inspection. The 3-window front has a central doorway with a fielded-panel door recessed in a round-headed arch with keystone. An asymmetrical accent is provided by a gable over the L-hand window. The R gable end has a small window inserted upper R with brick jambs. A gabled rear wing has a lower ridge line and end coursed-stone stack.
