Probably built in the late C17, and one of the earliest farmhouses in the district to have a central entrance, and shown on the 1837 Tithe map with cow house at the downhill end. A rear wing was added, probably in the mid C19 since it is not shown on the Tithe map, and the house is shown in its present form on the 1889 Ordnance Survey.


A 2-storey rubble-stone house with slate roof, rebuilt rendered stack to the R and tall stone stack to the end of the rear wing. Openings are offset to the L side. The central segmental-headed entrance has a half-glazed boarded door. It has a small window upper L of the doorway, a tall window carried up to the eaves to the R of the doorway, and a small pantry window further R. In the L-hand gable, where the ground level is higher, is a blocked upper-storey window. The rear is built against a steep bank and has been rebuilt in blockwork on the R side of the rear wing. Facing the downhill side the rear wing has a boarded door, a wooden cross window to the R, and a boarded-up window to the L directly below a 4-pane window in the upper storey.

The lower cow house, at the downhill end, is also rubble stone under a slate roof, and has 3 boarded doors. The gable end has a weatherboarded loft with boarded door.


Not inspected but said by RCAHM Wales to retain a post-and-panel partition.
