Hughgendon Terrace: 49-59 Gower Street, Kensington. Melbourne, Victoria

Hughendon Terrace is a long row of eight double storey boom style terrace houses in Kensington.   The elegant white terraces on flat ground form a classically inspired regency style row.   The parapet is plain with the exception of a prominent cornice punctuated only by pronounced arched pediments with crested mouldings.  Each pair of terraces shares a large roof and the pediment is designed to hide the gable behind as well as giving the appearance of wider individual houses.  The name of the terrace is curved inside the first two pediments of the row, one with signage of “Hughendon” and the other “Terrace”.
