10-18 Chalder Street, Newtown. Sydney, New South Wales

A row of four narrow double storey Victorian terraced houses in Newtown, an area full of similar streetscapes.These have a prominent central party wall along the steeply pitched corrugated iron roof with long chimneys on it and both end terraces. One of the terraces (16) gives an indication of the original corrugated iron alternating painted pattern which was common on verandahs of terraced buildings of the era.  The plainly dressed party walls project out to frame the verandah and divide the two main bays.  Cast iron lacework featuring fine fringes with brackets and balustrades are a feature of the facade.
