Houses like this freestanding boom terrace style home are my personal favourites and Parkville is a place which abounds in such examples of high Victoriana. Unrendered and painted in mustard to simulate sandstone, this particular home was built in 1882 1 and retains many of its original features. Though it appears to currently be undergoing renovations, hopefully much of its character can be preserved.
This interesting row of double storey terraces in rural New South Wales was not originally a terrace house. Originally a brewery built in 1882 out of sandstone it was converted into two wide double fronted houses of the typical Australian terrace style in 1915.
The most interesting aspect of this terrace was inherited from its days as a brewery, the arched entryway which would have allowed horse and cart to carry beer barrels to the rear stables. A long corrugated iron gable roof in the style of many Queensland terraces creates room at the front for the cast iron lacework decorated verandah.
