Ballarat Terrace: 227-231 Lydiard Street North, Soldiers Hill. Ballarat, Victoria

Ballarat Terrace, built in 1889, is about as close to the Melbourne boom style of terrace that you can find outside of Melbourne. The terrace is fully restored and operates as a bed and breakfast. It was designed for publican Hugh Raverty by local architect firm James and Piper.1

The size could possibly explained by their proximity to the railway station and the typically small blocks of the surrounding subdivision in Soldiers Hill.
