1-11 Auburn Parade. Hawthorn East. Melbourne, Victoria

This row of six narrow single storey houses is set back from the street and marches gently up Auburn parade. Unfortunately overgrown with trees and difficult to photograph, as such only houses 1-3 are pictured. Each house shares a party wall, but has its own hipped roof and central chimney partially obscured by their parapets. Most likely they were originally a row of modest Italianate villas, however the entire row has had its facade modified, most likely during to the late Edwardian or interwar period, making them fairly difficult to date.
