79-81 Merton Street, Albert Park. Melbourne, Victoria

This pair of terraces stands out for many reasons.  Firstly it is one of Melbourne’s few triple storey terrace houses.  It really stands tall even in Albert Parks streetscapes which are littered with rows of (mostly double storey) terrace housing.  Secondly because of the stark contrast in style and condition of the two.  Thirdly that they don’t even truly share a common party wall (it is two party walls side by side) makes their development all the more interesting.  Many villas in the Albert Park area share this double party wall configuration, however it may also suggests 79 could have been a slightly later addition.
