Built in the second half of the C19, part of the expansion of Tywyn following the arrival of the railway in 1863. The house is shown on the 1889 Ordnance Survey.

Exterior

The 2-window rear is pebble-dashed, with 9-pane and 12-pane sash windows similar to the front, and a lean-to built against the gable end of 23 High Street.
