27-33 Hawke Street. West Melbourne, Victoria

While architecturally simple and missing their iron lacework decorations, these four single storey row houses are of a style that is actually quite rare in Melbourne but proliferated in the 1870s in inner Sydney areas such as Glebe and Newtown where extensive rows can be found (example 31-42 Mitchell Street, Glebe). What is distinctive about this style is not the transverse gable configuration, but the combination of the blade party walls, central chimney, slate tile and banded paint (cream and maroon) concave corrugated iron verandahs referred to as Post-regency in Sydney. Constructed between 1870-1872, they were built for John Marley who lived at number 33 and remained their owner until the 1890s.1
