Traditional County: Denbighshire
Built in the early-mid C17 and probably originally timber framed, stoned around at a later date. Altered over later periods. Possibly the residence of the bandit Edward Davies (Cneifiwr glas) referred to by Pennant.
Whitewashed rubble stonework, with some timber framing at high level at the rear, slated roof. Two storeys, a 3-bay house with the living hall at the centre, originally with lobby entry from the present rear side. Parlour at the N, and kitchen at the S end with external door at the rear. The S front has the door position changed, and now has a C20 glazed door. Two-light sliding casement windows beneath the eaves; small 2-light casement with cambered head to right of entrance. One axial stack to the main living room, and a gable stack at the kitchen end, its top rebuilt.
The main living room has a large stone fireplace with fire lintel set to the rear, with internal oven. Very fine moulded cross ceiling beams, the mouldings swept out at the ends. Subsidiary joints chamfered with pyramid stops. Timber depressed-ogee head to the door to the upper end.
Included as a good example of a timber framed vernacular house later walled around in stone, where the original detail is well preserved internally.
