Pantaquest House lies just off Hensol Road on the way out of Miskin, a few hundred meters after you pass under the M4
Pantaquesta House was built by Colonel H Watson c.1891.
During the 1920s it was owned by Stuart Martin who is said to have altered the service range, and he may have been responsible for adding the Art-Nouveau veranda to the garden front.
It is a Tudor-style country house of 2 storeys with attic, of coursed rock-faced stone and slate roof hipped and half-hipped. The mullioned windows have leaded lights and sashes.
The garden front has projecting square 2-storey castellated towers at the ends. A veranda is inserted in the space between the towers. It is in Art Nouveau style with 3 cast iron columns and replaced glazed roof.
