History

Villa of the 1820s, marked on the Haverfordwest St Martin Tithe map of 1842. Originally called Barron's Cuckoo and built on the edge of Portfield Common for Jardine, Haverfordwest timber merchant who was bankrupt in 1840, when the estate was sold, including Highmead Farm, and the two became Upper and Lower Highmead. Jardine may have built the house for his mother and lived himself at Highmead. In 1842 the house was both owned and occupied by Bryant Evernefs. There was a Moravian chapel adjoining, ruinous by late C19 and since demolished.

Exterior

House, painted stucco with hipped concrete tile roofs, and roughcast end wall stacks. Two storeys, 3-window E front to garden and SE rear wing. Front has 12-pane sashes and centre C20 6-panel door with overlight. Raised stucco surround to door possibly marking removed porch.
