Possibly C17. The house was recorded in 1839 as the homestead of a holding of about 42 acres (17 hectares), owned and occupied by Evan Evans.
The house is of two-unit plan with a central baffle entry; it was extended at an early date to the right
(north-east) by two bays containing cattle sheds or a shed and stable. The extension is either
contemporary or of very early date, and the plan may be considered as a derivative form related to the
historic longhouse type, but there is no evidence of any internal communication between the house and
the animal part.
A derelict two-storey two-unit farmhouse in uncoursed axe-dressed quasi-rubble local stone with graded
slate roof and tile ridge; a lofted extension of two bays in tandem to the right in similar materials.
Another extension at rear of house with porch in angle. The stack of the central chimney has been lost
down to roof level. End-chimney at left with stack intact.
The house has its door offset a little to the right of centre, and windows each side vertically aligned.
The door and lower windows have large timber lintels. Lightly constructed timber windows with iron
glazing bars. Boarded main door, reduced at top.
The house and the extension in tandem are of the same height. In the extension the first bay has small
windows above and below, not aligned; the outer bay has a large window above and a ventilation slit
below. Heck door in the gable end. Against the gable end is a lean-to in similar materials.
The house is of two-unit plan with a baffle entrance against the central chimney. The central chimney
serves the right (kitchen) unit only; the left (parlour) unit has a smaller gable chimney. The left unit has
been divided longitudinally into two rooms. Lean-to extension at rear not seen internally.
Two bays at right end are cattle sheds or stables. Stall division in the outer bay.
A remarkably intact traditional minor farmhouse with animal accommodation in tandem with the house
both retaining unaltered original elevations.
