The property was designed by William White who was renowned for his part in 19th century gothic revival architecture.  
Penmellyn was built in 1855 of stone rubble with stone dressings and surmounted by a bituminous slate roof with crested ridge tiles, the main gable has a bellcote and the premises are believed to have been a former doctor's surgery.
