257-260 South Terrace, Adelaide. South Australia

This row of four double storey regency style sandstone terraces has been adaptively reused as a Disability Information and Resource Centre and has recently been restored and refurbished.

Terrace Houses: 257-260 South Terrace, Adelaide. South Australia

The side walls are in ashlar while the front facade is smoothed sandstone blocks with rectangular mouldings around the openings and ledges on the windows. The double storey verandah is a simple affair with wooden support posts and wooden balustrades.  The arched doorways are clustered together (as are the French doorways on the upper storey) and the ground floor sections around the door are emphasized by projecting forward.

I’m not sure of the date, builder or architect, however I would imagine based on its style that it was built fairly early in the 1870s.

The terrace is locally heritage listed with Adelaide Council (H0200866).
