S RANGE: later, single storey. Lintel dated ?1703?set into wall.
Some 4-pane glazing in timber windows. Corrugated asbestos roofing. Ashlar-coped skews.
FARMHOUSE: 2-storey and single storey, L-plan, harled farmhouse with painted stone margins, adjoining steading to W and N. Entrance to S with advanced gable to right, door in 2-storey porch in re-entrant angle to left. Mainly timber sash and case windows, slated roof, coped ashlar stacks and ashlar coped skews.
BOUNDARY WALLS: coped rubble boundary walls.
Steading shown as U-plan on 1st OS map. 1703 lintel is thought to originate from earlier (or altered) farmhouse. According to Snoddy, ?Harestanes? "indicates a boundary marked by stones". Farmhouse of marginal interest owing to alterations but relationship to steading and potential have justified inclusion.
