This is a good example of an earlier 19th century little altered farmhouse and ancillary building in the local architectural vernacular style. It is situated on the roadside and the grouping of farmhouse and ancillary building is a significant addition to the landscape. The farmhouse is symmetrical with little external decoration. Little altered traditional groupings such as this are becoming increasingly rare.
In Dumfries & Galloway, agricultural improvement occurred at different rates within the region, dependant on the local landowners and, by the New Statistical Account of 1845, there were still deemed to be in Crossmichael many farm buildings which were considered insufficient in quality. Burnbrae Farm and its associated ancillary buildings are likely to have built in the earlier 19th century as part of an Improvement scheme by the local landowner.
