History

Mid C19 house. An inscribed slate slab to the L of the doorway reads: Brynkir / Edward Jones / 1847. Probably an estate house erected on land belonging to William Pritchard Lloyd Esq.

Exterior

Mid C19 house; a 2-storey, 3-window range with single storey service/agricultural wing in alignment to L (SE). Built of rubble masonry, the principal elevation of the house has distinctive rough-faced, squared stone facings, laid to banded courses; ground floor openings with cambered stone voussoir heads. Roof of fishscale slates; house has projecting verges with shaped and pierced barge boards with gable finials and narrow rectangular gable stacks with capping. The house is a 3 window range with central entrance under a narrow rectangular overlight with glazing bars; the porch has a flat roof comprising a single slate slab on slate piers. To the L of the doorway is an inscribed slate slab which reads: Brynkir / Edward Jones / 1847. The rear elevation of the house echoes the front (a breeze block porch was being built at the rear entrance on inspection), and the returns have small, small-paned lights to the front.
The service/agricultural wing is a long, single storey range with central cambered archway through to the rear. To the R of the archway is a doorway under a shallow rectangular fan with glazing bars; small, single-paned light to L and replacement casement to R. To the L of the doorway is a narrow ventilation slot, single boarded doorway and double doorway at far L end. The rear elevation also has replacement casement windows.
