7 McCully Street, Ascot Vale. Melbourne, Victoria

This freestanding boom style double storey terrace is unfortunately not heritage protected and is in an unrenovated state.  Its double storey verandah balustrade, iron lacework and roof has been removed with a single column and decking all that remains and there are large visible cracks on the facade.  Still the facade is largely in its original condition and the lack of verandah reveals a  richly decorated parapet and party walls.

10-12 Crimea Street, St Kilda. Melbourne, Victoria

Crimea Street in St Kilda is a beautiful street lined by mature plane trees. While there are a number of flats, there are also a number of large and handsome Victorian homes including a few pairs of terrace houses like this one. This semi detached pair would have to be one of the most imposing, however. Set well back from the street and with generous wide proportions and extremely high ceilings, a lot of effort has gone into simulating stone and solid construction giving the terraces an overall majestic appearance. Unlike other Melbourne terraces, however this is notably achieved without heavy emphasis on its parapet.

56-58 Wellington Street, St Kilda. Melbourne, Victoria

It a bit stunned me to discover that this pair of large unnamed but seemingly well kept double storey terraces has never featured in a heritage study or been included in a heritage overlay. Considering the huge amount of redevelopment that Wellington Street has seen since the 1960s it is remarkable that they remain a feature of this area.

4-6 Longmore Street, St Kilda West. Melbourne, Victoria

This pair of narrow cottage sized single storey Italianate terrace houses feature a dainty design of intricate mouldings and a brickwork. The colour schemes of the symmetrical facades are a contrast in tastes, with 4 being restored to sympathetically reveal original tuckpointed brickwork and tile patterns while 6 is completely painted white, the trademark of the middle classes contrasted with black painted iron lace.

67-69 Watkin Street, Newtown. Sydney, New South Wales

These terrace houses, largely hidden by trees, are of a most unusual design.  Looking similar in appearance to a Manhattan brownstone, they feature an exaggerated Italianate mannerist (or baroque) style using stucco and mouldings to simulate heavy stone in stark contrast to the iron lacework inspired filigree terraces of the street.
