History

Barn, lofted cartshed and stable range of late Georgian estate farm. Marked on 1837 Tithe Map as part of the Llwynybrain estate probably contemporary with the house, c1800.

Exterior

Double-door large barn with double cartshed and possibly stable, all lofted to left. Added three-bay outbuilding downslope at much lower level due to fall in ground. The barn has a broad hipped end to roof to right, and it is possible that it was hipped at the other end originally, with the lofted part added, but no clear building joint. Corrugated iron to barn, slate to lofted range. Barn has 2 large cambered headed doorways with stone voussoirs, the left one obscured by C20 sliding metal doors. Lofted range has two cambered-headed cart-entries to right and door to left of centre, all with stone voussoirs. Loft door immediately over right cart-entry the door-head breaking eaves under slated gable.
At right end of barn at lower level is whitewashed stone added range, possibly cowhouse, with corrugated metal roof and 3 doors, 2 with lintels under eaves the third with timber lintel slightly lower, due to falling ground.

Reasons for Listing

Included as a well-preserved combined farm building range, part of a small late Georgian gentry farm, notable for the hipped roofed construction and open courtyard layout, rare in the region.
