History

Built in 1911 (date on building) for Philip Tatton Davies-Cooke of Gwysaney, and on the site of an earlier row of estate houses shown on the 1870 Ordnance Survey as Tai-cochion.

Gwysaney was built in 1603 but the historic character of the estate is derived principally from its redevelopment and enlargement after Philip Davies-Cooke inherited Gwysaney in 1821.

Reasons for Listing

Listed as well-detailed early C20 estate houses retaining strong original character, providing a contrast with the size and scale of earlier estate houses, and for their contribution to the historic character of the Gwysaney Estate.
