History

Built c1850 as part of Edward Douglas-Pennant's considerable efforts to improve the Penrhyn Estate, to which he had succeeded in 1840. Colonel Douglas-Pennant first gave notice to his tenants of his intention to improve through his agent, James Wyatt's address "To the Farming Tenantry of the Penrhyn Estate", printed in 1843.

Exterior

Uncoursed rubblestone to sides and rear with regularly coursed and dressed blocks and slate-stone voussoirs to front; large slate roof with deep overhanging verges and carved purlin ends. Front has gable projecting to left with 3-light window on ground floor and 2-light window directly above, both with slightly cambered heads and slate cills; similar 3-light window to main range on right of lean-to timber porch in angle with gable. Prominent stepped and rendered integral end stack to right of main range and similar ridge stack towards back of gabled range, which is hipped to rear, with another stack behind.
