History

Built by the Rev. Griffith Howell, rector, in 1819, on glebe land. Rhiwlas was formerly the rectory of St
Cadfan''s church, but is now privately owned.

Exterior

A well-proportioned two-storey, three-window Regency-style parsonage in axe-dressed slatey masonry
with low-pitched hipped slate roof with generous overhang. The house is L shaped, its main range facing
south-east to a lawn and garden. The second important elevation is the two-window return range to the
right, facing the approach to the house from the north-east.

The main elevation (to south east) is symmetrical, with three 12-pane windows above and two below, of hornless sash type or modern hinged imitation sash type. Timber canopy over the entrance door, supported on two round columns with half-columns behind. Modern replaced door with Regency architrave and rectangular overlight. The north-east elevation has similar windows but a blind window at top left, the lower sash windows horned.


Irregular rear to the house with a single storey annexe and a small two-storey annexe in the angle of the
main and return ranges. At rear to west is an open-sided coach house. Low wall separating the rear yard of the house from the stable yard to the north-west.

Interior
