The house was built c1830-40 by J.W.Poundley as an estate cottage and smithy for the Brytnllywarch estate.
Rubble with brick dressings, slate roofs. Cross plan, one storey and attic, gabled to each face with deep verges and highly fretted bargeboards terminating in apex and eaves spikes. Boarded door in the NE angle, under a lean-to roof. Two chamfered orders of brick forming pointed- headed window openings and containing small 24-pane windows, the glazing bars intersecting in the pointed heads. Central 8-flue linked octagonal stacks.
To the rear, the E wing is extended as a single-storey service range with a central brick stack.
Included as a successful essay in the picturesque style, and indicative of the wide extent and power of the Brynllywarch estate at the time of the Naylors.
