237-239 View Street, Bendigo. Victoria

This pair of unnamed red brick “blood & bandage” style Edwardian terraces in regional Bendigo is interesting, impressive and simple at the same time.  The terrace is set back on the block on a steep hill overlooking the city on a street filled with terraces and villas.  Although they are single storey, they have the commanding presence of a double storey terrace which is aided by the tall staircase ascending the retaining wall and the courtyard below.
