This complex of weatherboard buildings comprises stables, outbuildings, house and cheese factory in an unaltered condition. The house has been added to several times and the whole complex is extraordinary in its intactness, maintaining all the different stages of development. The house has a hipped roof section and an earlier double gabled section with simple decorated barge boards. It is remarkable as an early complex of weatherboard buildings of the 1850s.
