Nathan’s Terrace: 1-11 Shields Street, Flemington. Melbourne, Victoria

Nathan’s Terrace is one of the most interesting single storey terraces you’ll find anywhere in Australia.  Nearly identical neo-baroque boom style villas front both Shields and Wellington Street in Flemington.  The mid terrace is crowned by lions and a coat of arms atop an exageratted pediment and squat corinthian columns flanked by prominent balustrades, urns and corbels verandahs with cast iron filligree and fences.  A bay of flanking villas are topped by a giant broken crown round pediments in a Palladian motif with round arch openings and double arched windows with a small awning form a temple style in an elaborate display of exaggerated Victorian Mannerism.
