The Clifton Hill estate was developed in the 1870s and with its own railway station opening in 1888 quickly sprouted a number of boom terrace rows.  This row of seven (including corner shop) erected the same year in the Queen Anne style and is one of the most consistent and richly decorated in suburban Melbourne. They were developed by T Smith for Charles Abbott in 18881

Elsie Terrace (and Shop): 2-8 Portman Street, Zetland. Sydney, New South Wales

While much of Zetland is undergoing urban renewal as part of the Green Square project, a small pocket of the original Waterloo estate developed mostly in the 1885 stands much as it did, the Zetland Conservation Area1.  The row of three double storey Italianate terrace homes is named “Elsie Terrace” and was erected in 1886 as indicated on its central pediment.

165-171 Australia Street, Camperdown. Sydney, New South Wales

This row of eight double storey terrace houses has a former corner store on its end terrace situated on the corner of Lands Lane.  The row runs along Australia Street between Federation Lane and Lands Lane. The houses themselves are built up to the property line on the street with their double storey verandahs.  There are parapets on each house in the Melbourne style, however they stagger up the hills either singularly or in pairs in typical Sydney fashion.  The parapets hide the steeple of large gabled corrugated iron roofs with chimneys.  They have a central raised curve simulating a semi-circular pediment atop a set of string courses and a circle motif with a heavy cornice below.   The party walls are decorated with scrolls at the upper level and acanthus leaves and scrolls at the lower level.

27-33 Moncur Street, Woollahra. Sydney, New South Wales

This interesting row of three double storey terraces plus splayed corner shop. The corner shop has been altered at some stage. At the time the photo was taken the original render had been stripped back to expose bare bricks, however this has since been replaced and painted over. While the bare brick treatment that was common in fashionable 1960s renovations looked quaint it exposed porous brick and grout which made them susceptible to water ingress. The regency style corner shop is notable for the large decorative urns which grace its parapet as well as the fine brackets on its cornice, Georgian style door and window mouldings and corner balconette.
