Disgrifiad o´r Safle Ruperra Castle is an early renaissance house, probably dating from 1626. It is now roofless, following a fire in 1942, and the south-east quadrant of the south-eastern tower has fallen away.

Each front of the castle, which is 'cube' like in proportion, has a symmetrical rounded tower and the whole building is battlemented. The fire, followed by rebuilding, obscured much of the original plan which, however, retains the hall and screens passage. The whole house is built on a basement which contains the kitchen and service rooms. The surviving detail shows a mixture of late Gothic windows, probably conciously archaic as befitted a mock castle, and early Renaissance Classical detail in the porch and some doorways.
