History

Large Georgian townhouse apparently formerly called Plas-yn-Acre; the house was probably divided into two dwellings in the second-quarter C19 at which time the openings were modernised and entrances were created on the side elevations. Plas-yn-Acre has been modernised within the last few years.

Exterior

Belongs to a group of Plas Teg and Plas-yn-Acre.

Reflected pair of two-and-a-half storey houses, originally one single house. Of rubble construction under a high hipped slate roof with tall, panelled chimneys to the centre and sides. The 4-bay front elevation is symmetrical, with each unit occupying two bays. The windows to Plas Teg are unhorned original sashes with fine glazing bars; those to Plas-yn-Acre have recently been replaced with out-of-character PVCu tilting copies. The ground floor central bays have wooden canted bay windows with 20-pane main and 10-pane side sections. The outer ground floor windows are of 20 panes, and first floor windows are of 16, with 9-pane windows to the upper floor; these are contained within large finialled gabled dormers, with deep verges and moulded bargeboards.

Side entrances with panelled doors and reveals and open, flat-roofed porches carried on plain wooden pilasters. Similar upper floor window arrangement to the whitened rear elevation, with an additional modern first-floor entrance to Plas-yn-Acre; this with part-glazed door and metal fire escape. Plas Teg has a later single-storey lean-to extension with part-glazed door and flanking 6-pane windows; modern wooden conservatory extension to the L.

Interior

The interior was not inspected at the time of survey.
