Early C19, indicated on the 1841 Tithe map, when owned by Rev. Morgan Evans and occupied by David Davies. Later C19 additions and alterations.
Whitewashed rubble construction. Slate roof. Rubble gable chimney stacks, thicker to left, also stack to left lean-to, abutting house. Two bay front. Ground floor with 4-pane hornless sash windows, cambered stone voussoired heads. Two dormer windows with sloping "eyebrow" roofs, C20 glazing. Later rubble lean-to against left end with corrugated asbestos roof. Window to W (road) side with lintel and boarded door to rear. Later outshut to rear right with boarded door and 2-pane window to W.
Unusual plan, originally of two rooms with rear entry into the main one. Main ground floor room with three rough beams and modern fireplace. Six-panel door to parlour. Five-bay collar-truss roof structure. The E two pairs of trusses are rough with pegged collars and paired purlins. The others are later and sawn: perhaps this mixture is due to raising the roof to create attic rooms, reusing the best of the old timbers.
Included as an unusual small vernacular farmhouse with attractive regional character.
