History

Home Farm became the home farm of the Abbey Cwmhir Estate some time after it was purchased by Francis Philips in 1838. Its surviving farm buildings were built in the second half of the nineteenth century in distinctive estate style, and are shown on the 1889 Ordnance Survey.

Exterior

A lofted brick farm range with slate roof. Windows are small-pane iron-frame casements with Gothic glazing bars characteristic of the Abbey Cwmhir Estate. Facing the yard (E) is a wide lintelled doorway, with 2-light window to the L. The NE angle is splayed. The N gable end has a 2-light window and similar loft opening with one casement missing. In the S gable end is a lean-to with boarded E door, and 2-light window in the gable with one casement missing. Behind (W) is a lower wing with 2 full-height doorways and low round-headed doorway R of centre. On its S side is another long, low wing with wide doorway in its gable end, and boarded gable.
