This alphabetically named row (Abna, Boro, Cama, Divo, Edna, Freya and Gaza)1 is one of Glebe’s more interesting rows of terraces. Built in 1899-19002, the Queen Anne style edwardian terraces have a picturesque roofline combining prominent gables with a high pitched tile roof, decorative wooden fretwork bargeboards and tall chimneys with rows of terracotta pots giving the row a somewhat gothic dollhouse appearance.
This row of four double storey Victorian terraces (three pictured) is in Sydney’s inner west. The complete row is difficult to photograph due to the presence of large evergreen trees in front of the second terrace in the row. The suburb of Glebe is heavily gentrified and contains a great number of beautiful heritage buildings. This row is not the most spectacular on Glebe Point Road, but it has an interesting style presumably early 1890s. They have attributes of Queen Anne style architecture.
