This little row of two rare single storey terraces is notable for its use of wood lattice screens and lattice door which fully encloses its verandah to moderate the hot and humid subtropical conditions. The worker style cottages march down the slope of hilly Union street but is otherwise modest in design.
The corrugated iron roof is a simple two part affair with a main long gable with turned wood finials marking either end and a very flat pitched verandah roof. There lack of chimneys is further evidence of the response to climate.
The terraces are difficult to date, but could possibly have originally been built as early as the 1860s.
