27-33 Moncur Street, Woollahra. Sydney, New South Wales

This interesting row of three double storey terraces plus splayed corner shop. The corner shop has been altered at some stage. At the time the photo was taken the original render had been stripped back to expose bare bricks, however this has since been replaced and painted over. While the bare brick treatment that was common in fashionable 1960s renovations looked quaint it exposed porous brick and grout which made them susceptible to water ingress. The regency style corner shop is notable for the large decorative urns which grace its parapet as well as the fine brackets on its cornice, Georgian style door and window mouldings and corner balconette.

The terraces are Italianate, similar to many in Melbourne dressed with cast iron lace with semi-circular brackets, straight fringe and balustrade.

The shop which dates back to 1873 1 has become a fashionable address and home to Baccini & Hill for many years and more recently SugarLove Weddings & White Designs.
