Statement of Heritage Significance:

A simple stone dwelling with low hip roof clad with corrugated iron sheeting. A separate straight pitch roof covers a wrap around verandah supported by plain timber posts. Two squat stone chimney stacks protrude from the roof line. The panelled door has a plain fan light. Stone quoins surround the doorway. Two markings are found in the stonework, one is that date of construction and the other the level of the 1956 flood. The homestead is not habitable and as a result no garden exists, Tareena is the only known dwelling existing in the Shire constructed with random rubble stone coursing. The building is reminiscent of South Australian structures, reflecting its proximity to the State border.
