2-10 Rockwall Crescent, Potts Point. Sydney, New South Wales

This row of four terrace houses, hidden in a Potts Point sidestreet would have to be one of the most interesting in Sydney. Standing at 3 storeys with an additional attic level and English style basement, they create, along with their neighbouring rows, a truly impressive Victorian streetscape that would certainly not look out of place in inner London. There are a few key things that set this terrace apart – the prominence given to the roofs; the Italianate style of the faceted bay which rises through the centre of the facade of each house; and the skillful reservation in which ornament is used. All these things give symmetry, lend the row a sense of grandeur and elegance as well as donate significant rhythm to the street.

367-368 Beaconsfield Parade, St Kilda West. Melbourne, Victoria

On Beaconsfield Parade opposite a small triangular reserve, Catani Gardens and West Beach in St Kilda, can be found what remains of a truly special row of Melbourne terrace houses.  Only 2 of the original spectacular row of 5 houses remain. The State Library of Victoria records this terrace as 3 storeys, perhaps because their photographs do not show the sunken English style basement floor.  Although bastardised the remaining terraces are three bays wide and retain some of their original features. 1940s remodeling and demolition have rendered this row of terraces almost unrecognisable from what it once was.

18-20 Rockwall Crescent, Potts Point. Sydney, New South Wales

This row of three terraces forms part of a longer spectacular streetscape in a tree lined Potts Point back street.  What makes it especially interesting is that it is a four storey row without even counting the attic something which is more common in parts of London but especially rare in Australia.
