A down-slope two-unit Snowdonian house with cross-passage and projecting end chimney. The projecting end chimney and absence of a mural stair can be features of early Snowdonian houses. However the early sixteenth-century dates obtained from two beams suggest that it is a modified hall-house rather than a new-built storeyed house. A parlour wing added on the N side has a mural stair and was dated to the late sixteenth century. Plan and description in RCAHMW, Caernarvonshire Inventory, Volume I: East (1956), pp. 174. Dating commissioned by The National Trust Wales in association with NWWDP and RCAHMW. ( R.F.SUGGETT/RCAHMW/July 2011)
