Built probably in the C18 to a traditional plan of farmhouse and farm building in line, owned in 1842 by Sir Watkin William Wynne and occupied by a Hugh Jones. Extended at some time (perhaps early C19) by an additional farmbuilding, still in-line with the original range.
The house is built of rubble, and whitewashed, the attached farm building, probably a cowhouse, in line, built of coursed slate stone. Slate roof with blue ridge tiles on the dwelling, corrugated iron on the farm building. The building is on a traditional end-stack plan, with the entrance lobby against the stack opening to the main living kitchen, and an inner room, now extended into the earlier farm building. Boarded door with a timber lintel over. Two light casement windows with a small 4-pane to the attic set in a small flush gable. Two small dormer windows in the rear roof slope and flush roof lights. The opening to the former farm building, perhaps a cowhouse or stable, has a new glazed door on to the road. The house is extended to the rear under a lean-to roof to provide a kitchen. The farm building at the NE end consists of a cowhouse or stable with loft over, and has a ventilation slit opening to the left of the central boarded door, and a further ventilation slit to the loft under the eaves. A further opening is set in the gable end.
The interior is modernised. The centre is timber framed, with the tie beam extending through the front wall.
Included as a good example of a small farmstead of traditional form built on enclosed road verge, perhaps an encroachment, and a building still retaining the character of the C18 or early C19 period, with buildings characteristically in-line.
