Traralgon: 214-218 Williams Road, Toorak. Melbourne, Victoria

Part of the 1890s Bush Inn Estate, this row of three brown bricked terraces bears the name “Traralgon” on the central parapet, obviously inspired by the Victorian town in the Latrobe Valley founded around 30 years prior. The impressive row is rich in Mannerist style high Victorian decoration.

Victoria House and Hopetoun House: 22-24 Northcote Road, Armadale. Melbourne, Victoria

There is a certain grace and elegance to Armadale’s terraces.  Many are grand, but exist in very short rows.  Along the eastern side of Northcote Road there are several grand examples set high up back from the street obviously a vantage from which they have elevated views of the city skyline.  This double storey row at 22-24 is no exception.  I find it particularly interesting as for a boom style pair they manage to pull off a sense of grandeur despite their comparatively refined ornament.
