4-6 Longmore Street, St Kilda West. Melbourne, Victoria

This pair of narrow cottage sized single storey Italianate terrace houses feature a dainty design of intricate mouldings and a brickwork. The colour schemes of the symmetrical facades are a contrast in tastes, with 4 being restored to sympathetically reveal original tuckpointed brickwork and tile patterns while 6 is completely painted white, the trademark of the middle classes contrasted with black painted iron lace.

195 Adderley Street, West Melbourne. Victoria

This is a great little freestanding terrace on the fringe of Melbourne’s CBD which shows a free spirited approach to design.  The house is rich in textures, materials and ornament.  There are even cherub statuettes on the party walls, something quite rare for Australian terrace houses.  The terrace has an intricate “Hawthorn brick” facade.  Refined details focused on the chimney, cornice and party walls.

Korien and Maroura: 2-4 Challis Avenue, Potts Point. Sydney, New South Wales

It would be fairly safe to say that this pair of three storey terrace houses Korien (2) and Maroura (4) shares the same architect, plan and date as nearby terraces on McDonald Street.  In fact the slight exception of this less impressive stand marching downhill toward the harbour and a slightly different style of urn (ball) on the verandah party wall.  Another notable difference is the visibility of the chimneys on the end terraces with their rows of six pots.  At the time of the photograph Maroura seemed to be missing its verandah balustrade – not just a visual anomaly but also quite an occupational hazard.

59-63 Park Street, South Yarra. Melbourne, Victoria

This unnamed terrace of three large homes in South Yarra is a rare example of the English style basement which is common in Sydney – in Melbourne. The combination of the three storeys and the elaborate treatment of the facade and detailed iron lace makes it notable.
