This pair of semi-detached weatherboard terraces in Golden Point close to Canadian Creek, just south of the Ballarat CBD has an exceptionally rare feature of such houses in Australia, northern European style clipped or half-hipped gables. Combined with their projective eaves and brackets and other timber decorative detail and mouldings (including six panelled timber Victorian style doors surrounded by sidelights, fanlight and paired double hung windows), bullnosed verandahs, iron lace fringe and brackets and tall polychrome brick chimney and party walls, this is a most distinctive pair of cottages.
Its likely that these cottages date to the 1890s. They are located within a heritage overlay (HO173).1
