Heritage Council assessment
Both cottages are standard Type 5 with detached washhouses and timber framed and clad garages.
The cottages are timber framed, with a corrugated iron hipped roof and timber cladding. Building 1109 has pine weatherboards which have been painted, while Building 1110 has stained, square sawn weatherboards with a chamfered edge.
Both cottages have a single chimney is plain face-brick with a soldier course detail at the top. The front of the building has a bedroom projecting in front of the other rooms and a skillion roof projecting further forward over the central verandah. The verandah had a timber floor and is supported by simple square posts. Building 1110 has a vertical timber panel balustrade.
The front living room and bedroom windows are triple casements with two horizontal glazing bars. The front kitchen window and the side windows are similar, paired casements. Some of the windows have framed awnings and others are unprotected.
In plan the cottages include a living room (with open fire), two bedrooms, kitchen (with wood stove), and a bathroom off the rear verandah.
The cottages are lined with plasterboard walls with dados and painted picture rails. Internal doors are flush panel, stained to blend with the dado and architraves. The front doors are divided horizontally into four panels, the upper three fitted with obscure glass. Plasterboard ceilings have moulded cornices. Floors are 75mm T&G boards. The living room fireplaces have face-brick with a flat arch and simple timber mantle.
Both cottages are generally intact, although rear verandah has been enclosed and aluminium windows have replaced some of the original casements. Kitchen and bathroom fittings have been upgraded over time.
The original front fence is intact, but the gate of Building 1109 is missing and the gate of Building 1110 is intact.
