gables, chamfered segmental-headed planked doors and shuttered
windows, replaced at east end by square-headed openings, open-

north barns and south ranges leading to central feed passage.
North ranges include 8-bay barns with segmental-headed openings and
sliding doors, loophole vents; V-strut tie-beam trusses. Two-
storey offices attached at west end have 4-pane sashes and
horizontal sashes; all segmental-headed openings. Two-storey
sawmill of three parallel ranges has large round-arched opening to
central range, segmental-headed openings with pivot-hung or 2-light
casements, exterior gallery on cast-iron brackets, tall stacks with
moulded cappings formerly to steam engine for threshing machine and
sawmill. Interior of sawmill largely unaltered, south range
remodelled internally 1980s. Fine example of Victorian estate
