History

Originally known as Maesruddud, Maes Manor was built in 1900 as an addition to an earlier house and extended in 1907 when the original house was demolished. The second phase was added for L. Brewer Williams by E.P. Warren, architect of London. Between 1907 and 1914 a number of ancillary buildings and garden structures were built by Warren in collaboration with Thomas Mawson, who designed the garden. The lower terrace forms one of 2 concentric terraces in the formal garden to the S of the house.

Exterior

Central steps have flanking walls and a gate at the lower end with square freestone piers and ball finials. Double wooden gates incorporate wooden panels and iron bars and are swept up to the outer sides. The rubble-stone revetment forms a convex semi-circle.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as an integral component of an Edwardian garden by one of the foremost contemporary garden designers, and for its contribution to the setting of the house.
