Pembridge Terrace: 49-55 Stevenson Place. Newcastle, New South Wales

Central Newcastle has some distinctive gems of terrace housing and this one, built in 1900, and situated on the corner of Stevenson Place and Telford Street with views over the foreshore park and the Hunter River is definitely one of them. The eclectic Anglo-Dutch, Queen-Anne and Mannerist styled red brick terrace likely named for the village in Herefordshire England, has a number of quite quirky features including the way it addresses its corner site, art-noveau styled signwriting and mannerist elements.

433-445 Glebe Point Road, Glebe. Sydney, New South Wales

This alphabetically named row (Abna, Boro, Cama, Divo, Edna, Freya and Gaza)1 is one of Glebe’s more interesting rows of terraces. Built in 1899-19002, the Queen Anne style edwardian terraces have a picturesque roofline combining prominent gables with a high pitched tile roof, decorative wooden fretwork bargeboards and tall chimneys with rows of terracotta pots giving the row a somewhat gothic dollhouse appearance.
