416-426 Lydiard Street North, Soldiers Hill. Ballarat, Victoria

This row of six single storey double fronted red brick Victorian era terraces is the longest of several single storey rows along Lydiard Street.  The row marches down the hill and terminates in an end terrace shop on the Macarthur Street corner.  The terraces themselves are wide with a central door and a prominently banded facade with double column support filligree verandahs and feature original cast iron fences.  The roof features decorated eaves and a visible low pitched profile with two banded chimneys.

The terraces are offered local heritage protection as part of a City of Ballarat’s heritage overlay.1

I’m not sure of the date of construction or architect, however the style would indicate that this row was built in the mid to late 1880s – my guess is around 1887.
