Built c1700 as a timber-framed house with hearth-passage plan, set into a slope with a farm range below. It was improved c1825 when the house was encased in stone, with a lobby-entry plan, and an outshut was added to the rear. Later the farm range was also rebuilt in stone. The house has been uninhabited since a new farmhouse was built in the late C20.


A 2-storey 2-window rubble-stone house with slate roof and stone stack to the L. Openings of c1825 are under flat stone arches in the lower storey. The doorway to the L has a boarded door. Casement windows are replacements in iron and wooden frames, the 3-light hall window in the centre being larger. The farm range is rubble stone with corrugated iron and slate roof, and incorporates a former cow house with stable at the downhill end. Immediately L of the house is a timber-framed bay clad in corrugated iron, with replaced boarded door (to the original hearth passage) and a loft opening. Further L, where the wall is rubble stone, are 2 boarded doors and similar double doors further L, with a loft opening to the R. The L gable end has been rebuilt in blockwork. Added to the rear is an open-sided store on timber posts. The house has a continuous rear outshut under a catslide roof, with shallow projection on the R. Openings have brick heads, comprising an inserted door to the L, and centre-R a former doorway under a brick cambered head converted to a window.


Not inspected but said by RCAHM Wales to retain the original plan of hall and parlour, and to have retained timber-framing between main range and outshut, part of the original outside wall.
