GV II Shown on O.S. map as Preesgwyn House. House. Mid C17, remodelled 1834 (date on rainwater head) with later additions and alterations. Roughcast brick on rendered rubblestone plinth, probably partly concealing timber frame; slate roof concealed by coped parapet with pointed corner finials to front. Three bay main range with two bay range at right-angles to rear on right. Eaves raised to front of main range. Three storeys. Three windows, four-paned sashes to first and second floors (to left and right only on second floor) with shaped plastered lintels, those to first floor having carvings of human heads and leaf decoration to centre. Shallow hip-roofed verandah to ground floor continued to left gable end, over late C19 French windows to left and right. Central entrance has open stone Roman Doric pedimented porch with metopes and triglyphs slightly projecting from verandah. Late C19 half-glazed door has earlier C19 wreathed and radiating fanlight with beading and fluted corner spandrels. Stepped external end stack to left and integral end stack to right. Floor band to left rear range cut by segmental-headed opening with three-light wooden mullion window; integral end stack to rear of range. Integral lateral stack to C19 rear addition.

INTERIOR: chamfered beams, some boxed in, to ground floor rooms. Infilled doorway to rear of central passage has fanlight similar to that in front door but without beading. Reused Jacobean panelling below. Dog-leg staircase to left of passage rises to second floor. Elaborately carved with unusually shaped splat balusters [similar to those at Fron Farmhouse (q.v.)] and carved decoration to newel-posts, closed string and moulded handrail. Probably later turned balusters rising from newel-posts to support flights above; other newel-posts have urn finials (probably C19), some now removed. C18 panelled doors and C19 fireplaces with decorative cast-iron grates throughout; wide boarded oak floor boards to first floor rooms. Double-purlin roof with parts of collar and tie beam trusses exposed to second floor of main range.
