The house is a two storey Late Victorian structure, with bay windows on the first floor, white trim around the windows and doors, a brown roof and light coloured bricks. The barns are painted red. Prior to purchasing the farm, John Perrin worked for variety of employers such as: Moses Unger, James Bunion, John Newstead, William Hope, and Henry Bricker, doing such tasks as cutting firewood and helping out with the wheat harvest.
