71 Garden Street, Alexandria. Sydney, New South Wales

This colourful freestanding unnamed Victorian terrace, built in 1885 has an interesting parapet – a central urn atop a raised with a wreath draped between two corbels – makes a clear mannerist and free classical statement.  The otherwise plain symmetrical terrace house achieves some quirkiness through the wave verandah roof, which like the parapet also functions to hide roof elements from street level.  (Photo by: J Bar licenced under (CC-SA))
