4/53 Llyndu House
Cottage. C16 with C20 alterations and addition. Mud and stud,
painted plaster, with thatched hipped roofs having decorative
eaves and 2 ridge brick stacks. T-plan, the rear range is a C20
addition. Single storey with attics, 4 bay irregular front. The
right hand end bay is in a lower single storey range. The house
was originally of 5 bays with a central door, the door has been
moved to the rear range. The 4 windows are all C20 glazing bar
casements of 2 or 3 lights. 2 corner posts and part of the wall
plate are visible, but the post on the right hand corner is in
pine and a fake. The interior is much modernised but the
original wall studs, bracing, tie beams and wall plate survive.
In the hall the ceiling beam is chamfered with unusual double
pyramid stops. The studs rest on padstones and additional jowled
pieces have been attached to the studs, and notched to provide
seating for the wall plate, perhaps indicating that the attic
floor has been added later.
