East wing of gentleman's residence, built 1772, for Thomas Lloyd (of Trawscoed), the architect not recorded but probably Robert Mylne, or Anthony Keck. Part of a lately fashionable Palladian house with centre block and side wing, which was burnt down in 1856.
Trawscoed H_n is reputed to replace a timber framed building on the same site. Thomas Lloyd was a descendant of Sir Gruffydd Vychan (Vaughan), knighted at Agincourt, who died in 1447, who claimed to be a descendant of the Brochwel Princes of Powys. The house subsequently passed through the hands of Edward Lloyd of Maesmawr, a Parliamentarian in the Civil War.
The red brick east range is a mirror image of the west wing, except that the link block has been reduced in height to the upper string and given a hipped slate roof, and two small single-storey extensions at E side, under alteration to form accommodation November 1994. Some 12-pane sashes survive, possibly original.
The E wing contained the kitchens, brewhouse, bakehouse and service rooms for the house, the blocked wide arches for former fireplaces being visible internally.
Of important group value with the W wing. Included as Grade II, despite the loss of the central block, as an important survival of fashionable Goergian architecture in Powys.
