A plan of Talycoed, drawn by Sir Cyril Fox in 1952, is illustrated in part III of Monmouthshire Houses. At the downhill end is the original early C16 timber-framed hall-house which was later reconstructed as a service wing to the adjoining early C17 Renaissance block. Fox and Raglan describe the interior of the C17 block, including the oak door-frame of entrance doorway with drawbar holes, reserve-chamfered window-frames, and quarter turn stair with landings housed in rear stair wing. A photograph of E elevation, taken by Fox and Raglan c1952, clearly shows the exterior of the tall stairs wing (Plate XXVI c). The 1843 Tithe Map marks Talycoed as owned by Thomas Davies and occupied by Phillip Watkins.

External walls are rendered; slate roof has axial brick stack in centre, and projecting rendered stack with brick flue at S end- gable.

E elevation has tall projecting gable of stair wing (left), which has small 1-light window (below) and 2-light mullion in gable-head. Side wall to right has a 2 2 pane window on first and 3-pane window below. Former hall-house (right) has on first floor two 2 2 pane windows. On ground floor is a C20 glazed door (centre) flanked by a segmental-arched window on each side, with C20 inserted 1-light window (far left).
Not available at time of resurvey.
Included as a good example of a small Renaissance house, developed from a sub-medieval original and thus demonstrating an important stage in the evolution of the regional house. Notwithstanding alteration to detail, the house retains its original form.
