Earlier to mid C19 house on the village street, unusual in having the centre recessed between wings. Probably the 'Nolan Lodge' referred to in 1861, occupied by David Thomas, a book distributer. By 1881, Joseph Bowen, butcher, and his wife, Hannah, were living here.
House, painted stucco of three connected ranges in a arrangement of central block set back between two projecting hipped wings, enclosing a small, railed, forecourt. Slate close-eaved roofs, gabled to main range with brick stacks. Two-storey and basement. Double-fronted centre range with C20 4-panel door in gabled timber slate-roofed porch with dwarf rendered walls and glazed sides. Four-pane sashes to left and right each floor, with painted stone sills.
Left wing has later C20 panelled timber door to W side right. N end has matching 4-pane sash to upper storey, ground floor has tripartite 2-6-2-pane sash in timber surround with stone sill. E side has tall brick stack and 12-pane sash to first floor left.
Right wing has blank E wall. N end has 12-pane first-floor sash and C20 small-paned ground floor projecting bay, rounded with three 6-pane casements beneath 2-pane top-lights. Nine-pane C20 casement to first floor W side near N return.
Bargeboards and rainwater goods replaced in later C20. C20 basement window to E side.
The front courtyard is enclosed by a curved dwarf rendered wall bearing decorative wrought-iron rails with spearheads flanked by scrolls. Mid height rail with similar spearheads above and dog-bars below. Paired gates to centre in matching style with wrought-iron scrolls and spearheads above top rail, ramped down to meeting-stile.
Included for its architectural interest as a C19 village house of unusual plan, with good ironwork to forecourt.
