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. The corner terrace on the Leichhardt corner is particularly interesting as it faces the corner with an angular bay with one of three feature gables. The corner terrace also has decorative string courses, window surrounds as well as angular niches and rear access doors with palisade fencing.
This row of four double storey Victorian terraces (three pictured) is in Sydney’s inner west. The complete row is difficult to photograph due to the presence of large evergreen trees in front of the second terrace in the row. The suburb of Glebe is heavily gentrified and contains a great number of beautiful heritage buildings.
