'Whitehart' was erected c1856 for Frederick Thompson and originally served as a hotel. It is now a residence. The complex of single storey timber buildings consists of a long verandahed structure facing the main road and several outbuildings grouped around a rear courtyard. The main wing probably once comprised the public roomswith the principle residential, service and stable rooms in the outbuildings.
There is a notable and unusually intact example of provincial hotel architecture. The low buildings are indicative of early times. The unusually long facade of the main wing and its canted bay end are distinctive features. The surviving outbuildings are also notable and show evidence of the early use of the buildings. The cast iron verandah (a later addition), the verandah paving and the picket fence enhance the complex and give a picturesque quality. The buildings are an essential feature of this quiet country hamlet.
The cast iron verandah was added at a later date, the original verandah was probably timber.
