Late C18 or early C19 barn, now house, marked on 1837 Tithe Map. The farm was then owned by Elizabeth Edwards of Rhydygors and occupied by Simon Thomas. Earlier it had been leased from the Edwinsford estate by Charles Nott, father of Major-General Sir William Nott, who came to Carmarthen in 1794 as landlord of the Ivy Bush Hotel.


Detached former barn, now house, in rubble stone (whitewashed when listed in 1981) with red brick dressings and slate gabled roof. Irregular 2 storey. Tall cambered-arched centre barn entries on long walls, infilled with late C20 glazing. One ventilation slot to right on E side, 2 on W side. E side has cambered-headed 4-pane sash to first floor left, then ground floor small 4-pane arched window. To right of barn door are 2 ground floor 4-pane sashes with cambered brick heads and slate sills. Three flush C20 skylights. Blank left gable end to road.
The right end had outside steps rising up between barn and a rubble outbuilding to right with flat-arched entry in front wall. Now much rebuilt in late C20 with recessed one-window rendered section to left with 4-pane sash each floor (presumably on site of stair), and rebuilt rubble stone section to right with one ground floor 4-pane sash with cambered brick head.
