History

Built c1867 by Richard Owens, architect of Liverpool, for the industrialist John Roberts. Richard Owens had been surveyor to his father, David Roberts, before starting his own practice which specialised in chapel building. Bryngwenallt is a rare surviving example of a domestic building by this prolific architect.

Exterior

One storey and attic, 'T'-plan, with cross wing having a gabled end with a canted stone mullioned bay window overlooking the drive. Shallow square bay window to the first structural bay, and a door at the junction of the two wings. Steeply pitched roof with fretted bargeboards and terminal finials, and stone stacks.

Reasons for Listing

Included for group value with the contemporary Bryngwenallt which is a notable Victorian mansion.
