Brick & stone cottage
The cottage is located opposite the homestead entrance, facing north. It is a small single-storey structure constructed from hand-made red bricks (probably constructed on site or locally) and sandstone both of which have been painted with a white wash. The hipped roof is clad with corrugated galvanised steel, which is covers the early (or original) timber shingles. There is a single painted brick chimney. Doors are four-panel timber and windows are multi-pane double hung sashes. The south elevation is an open verandah with round timber columns. The cottage is in poor condition but is being maintained. The style and nature of construction suggests that it was constructed in the mid to late nineteenth century, possibly as early as c.1860. This building is possibly the one once known as the 'shearer's cottage' and may be the only building to survive from the pre-emptive right era of the rostier family.
The only pre WWII outbuilding is a small timber building to the south-west of the brick cottage adjacent to the driveway. The function of this building, which is in poor condition is known. A second building, an interwar dwelling ( fibro house/pavillion) identified in 2004, was demolished c.2005 and replaced on the same site by dwelling now at the west end of the entrance driveway on the south side. Other building corrugated iron-clad sheds and brick building all date from the post WWII period.
A key landscape element is the driveway, which is lined with an avenue of 51 elms down each side; these are mature from the gates through to the 28th tree, and semi-mature after that indicating two stages of planting. The size of the more mature specimens suggests an original planting date of around 1900. About 10 of the trees are recent in-fill sapling plantings.
Other related landscape elements are a number of cypresses (Cupressus macrocarpa) which appear to have been planted in the early twentieth century as a wind-break, and there are more mature Cypress windbreaks in the surrounding paddocks. These vary in maturity and appear to date from the early to mid-twentieth century.
