External character suggests a mid-late C19 date for this house, but substantial gable-end stack and roof-line continuous with that of Ty Llwyd may be indicative of earlier origins.


House and shop, comprising a two storeyed, two window range. Probable rubble masonry construction, with rendered elevations. Slate roof with broad rectangular stacks with drip-stones and capping on gable ends, that to the left shared with Ty Llwyd. Late C19 type shop front occupies the right-hand unit: it has central half-glazed door flanked by tall 3-pane windows under a moulded cornice; tripartite sash window above (probably contemporary with the shop front). Dwelling occupies the narrow left-hand unit: panelled door to right under a shallow overlight with central glazing bar; to left an unequal hornless sash window of 9 panes with slate sill on each floor. To the right of the door is a slate plaque bearing the inscription: YN Y HWN GANWYD/Y CFANSODDWR/MEIRION WILLIAMS/GORFENNAF 19eg 1901. (The composer Meirion Williams was born in this house, July 19 1901
