Description

Physical description: Four small cottages ranging in age from the Federation to Inter War period. This group of Church street cottages (4) has historic and architectural significance. Cottages have similar form, scale and proportions although built at different times. They contrast with other dwellings in the street particularly 51 Woodford Street which is a corner block.

Cottages 5 & 7 are on the northern side of the street. Cottage 7 is a simple weatherboard with iron roof and skillion over the front verandah. The verandah has no decoration but retains original joinery with 4 paned timber windows. No fence or historically significant garden (see image). No 5 is an inter war bungalow with wide double gable to the front. Weatherboard with iron roof and rendered chimney intact. The verandah has been enclosed. Windows replaced with aluminium. Painted brick and timber fence.

Cottages 10 & 12 are located on particularly small blocks on the southern side of the street. The small block size has made it difficult to built modern features like carports. Number 12 has extended the verandah roof to include a carport. Both houses are weatherboard and their scale and form complement the street. Number 10 has enclosed the front verandah.
