Farmhouse with probably late C17 or early C18 origins, and some C19 reworking. The evidence for timber-framing visible to the exterior of a barn on site, suggests that the present house succeeds an earlier, C16 or first-half C17, house.
Two-storey farmhouse of L-plan, consisting of a main, S-facing block, with a long, lower range adjoining at right-angles to the N. Of limestone rubble construction with slate roofs and tiled ridges. The main block has a hipped roof and 2-stage brick end chimneys with dentilations. 4-bay S facade with entrance to the third bay. This has a recessed panelled door with 4-pane rectangular overlight and dressed stone lintel. 12-pane wooden cross windows with projecting stone sills and lintels as before.
The lower range has an entrance to its W (inner) side via a C20 part-rendered and slated porch. To the R is an 8-pane rectangular, horizontal sash; to the L are small 4-pane casements flanking a 2-light casement with a 6-pane and 4-pane section. Eight-pane 2-part casements to the first floor; 2 narrow brick central chimneys. The left-hand bay of this range has a wide cart entrance with a boarded loading bay above. This has a brick dormer with pitched roof and deep verges; the cart entrance has an opposing entrance to the rear, thereby forming a covered passage. Adjoining this range to the L and stepped-down from it is a late C19, single-storey, 3-bay addition with hipped roof; central, stepped-up entrance and flanking small-pane cross-windows, all with brick quoins and cambered heads. A further hipped-roofed, single-storey block adjoins beyond.
Access to the interior was not gained at the time of inspection.
Listed for its special interest as farmhouse retaining significant elements of its C17/early C18 origins, retaining good exterior character.
Group value with the Agricultural Range at Llwyn-Uchaf.
