26 Maitland Street, 1885

This quaint cottage, of Uralla brick on granite and basalt footings, features a front verandah with cast iron lace frieze under a concave galvanized iron roof
The front door has exquisite etched glass. The cottage was sympathetically extended in 1977 using "sawn slab and batten" construction, typical of many humble houses in the area in the 1880s.

 5 Elizabeth Lane, 1885

Of red Uralla brick, creatively enlarged in 2002 using bricks from the demolished 1880 s Gostwyck Municipal Council building in King Street.


Nos. 35 and 37 Maitland Street, 1889

The only pair of two-storey semi-detached houses in the New England area still existing. The houses are identical, although "mirror reversed." The austere verandah is capped with bull-nose galvanized iron. The only other similar local houses were in Armidale, but were demolished in 1975 to provide a concrete parking area for a petrol station!


16. "Foxwood", 1891, 31 Maitland Street

Built by Uralla builder Mr Ford, "Foxwood" is rich in the architectural detail of the Victorian era... complete first floor verandah frieze of cast iron lace, ornamental cast iron columns with decorative brackets, ornamental window surrounds, splendid door, door knocker, sidelights, and a front wall which has tuck-pointing painted on in what was the peculiar fashion of the time. To the rear of this elegant house are two timber buildings, on the left the servants' quarters and on the right the bathroom, ensuring that all the dirt was kept outside!
