- Elphin House
House. Early-mid C19, possibly of older origin, and with later additions.
Coursed rubble sandstone, pantile and Welsh slate roof. Original house of 2
storeys and 3 bays, with 2-storey l-bay addition dated 1894 to right, and
single-storey addition, formerly doctor's waiting room, to left. Main house:
central part-glazed door below 3-pane fanlight in round-arched doorcase with
canopy on concave corbels with paterae. Sash windows with glazing bars with
ashlar sills and deep lintels. Shaped kneelers, ashlar coping. Corniced ashlar
end stacks. To right, 1 bay with matching windows and Welsh slate roof, ashlar
coping and corniced ashlar stack to right end. To left, 2 round-arched windows
with blind Diocletian window above the 2nd; coping to parapet. Rear: 20-pane
landing window, brick dentil cornice. For many years the house belonged to the
village doctor, and the gate post to the left has a hook for tethering patients'
horses. The name is taken from the Elphin Beck which flows from the south-west
of the village.
