Heritage Council assessment
This is a substantially intact standard Type UK7-2A cottage with timber framed and clad garage. Building 1902 has very similar detailing to Building 1901, although to a different floor plan.
The cottage is timber framed, with timber cladding and a blue concrete tiled gabled roof. The roof has flat soffits to the front overhang and open timber battens to the side overhangs. A large rectangular chimney is expressed full height on the south-western side of the building.
The floor plan comprises a simple rectangle with a living room, three bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, laundry and toilet all under the main roof. The front porch extends forward from the main part of the house, is supported by simple square sawn posts, and has a raised concrete floor.
Internally the house is plasterboard lined to walls and ceilings. Floors are 75mm Jarrah T & G boards. Internal doors are flush panel, while the front door has a single, full height obscure glass panel. There is a built-in linen cupboard in the central passage.
The fireplace in the living room is painted brick with a projecting brick hearth and plain timber mantle. Above the mantle, the chimney is also expressed in face brick (also painted). A feature of the living room is the built-in entrance hall screen, which features a softwood frame forming shelves on the living room side, with obscure, vertically patterned glass panels.
