5-9 Inverness Avenue, Armadale. Melbourne, Victoria

This rare row of three concertina terraces in Armadale erected by local builder William Maben in 1901 is situated near to Armadale station. The grand homes feature extremely tall parapets with tall dutch style parapets, balustrade and urns (although missing on number 5). The terraces are rich in high Victorian architectural detail and also feature faceted bays, window mouldings, fine iron lacework. Originally within the City of Malvern, they are part of the Inverness Avenue Heritage Precinct (HO179) of the City of Stonnington.1

Victoria House and Hopetoun House: 22-24 Northcote Road, Armadale. Melbourne, Victoria

There is a certain grace and elegance to Armadale’s terraces.  Many are grand, but exist in very short rows.  Along the eastern side of Northcote Road there are several grand examples set high up back from the street obviously a vantage from which they have elevated views of the city skyline.  This double storey row at 22-24 is no exception.  I find it particularly interesting as for a boom style pair they manage to pull off a sense of grandeur despite their comparatively refined ornament.
