Tyler Terrace: 195-211 Gregory Terrace, Spring Hill. Brisbane, Queensland (replicas)

I normally don’t get too excited by contemporary terraces, however such is the effort toward authenticity with this one in Brisbane that it warrants a mention.  Set high on Spring Hill and overlooking Victoria Park Tyler Terrace is a row of five double storey houses named after a local builder restorer. Tyler terrace is a fairly accurate rendition of a typical row of classically inspired Italianate style Melbourne terrace houses – well researched with its pedimented parapet, finials and blind balustrade.  The row is situated in an area which does have small patches of actual heritage terraces as well as several lesser attempts, which adds significant credibility to their appearance.
