The Threshing Barn is a fine timber-framed building, open to the rafters, dating from the early 17th century and clad with traditional dark stained weatherboarding. There has not been any working farm at this site for many decades. Structural repairs and new use are required. Consents have recently been granted for conversion of the barn to residential use. Approved designs include the replacement of unattractive modern outbuildings attached to the barn is to be replaced with a new contemporary bedroom block to avoid subdividing the interior of the barn. A free-standing two-story pod takes up one bay of the six bays leaving a wonderful open space for living accommodation.
