Originally known as Maesruddud, Maes Manor was built in 1900 as an addition to an earlier house and extended in 1907 when the original house was demolished. The second phase was added for L. Brewer Williams by E.P. Warren, architect of London. Between 1907 and 1914 a number of ancillary buildings and garden structures were built by Warren in collaboration with Thomas Mawson, who designed the garden. The upper terrace forms one of 2 concentric terraces in the formal garden to the S of the house.


Central stone steps are flanked by square freestone piers with ball finials. The rubble stone revetment is convex semi-circle terminating at each end with stone steps at right angles.
