History

Built in 1874 as one of a pair with Plas-y-Coed. In 1881, the property was occupied by David Jenkins, a builder and his wife, Margaret. He may have been the builder of the property. The lease was advertised for sale in 1884.

Raised painted plinth, unpainted 1st floor sill band, and raised stucco angle strips. Three-window facade with marginal glazed plate glass sashes with slate sills throughout. First floor openings have raised stucco surrounds. Ground floor centre has 4-panel timber door with rectangular overlight. Tall timber doorcase with decorative brackets rising from lintel level, supporting cornice hood with leaded top, an unusual design that leaves a narrow rectangle framed by lintel, cornice and brackets.

Narrower canted sides have narrow lights, with margins to heads and bases. Hipped slate roof to both bays. Plain timber eaves board.
