Another row of double storey terrace houses in Adelaide’s Hurtle Square, this time a row of four which I find interesting for its contrasting use of corrugated iron verandah roof forms of the end terraces. The verandah of the remodelled house at 23 Hurtle Square breaks the rhythm and adds interest through its concave roof, contrasting detail and colour scheme.
This row of four double storey houses fronts Hurtle Square but also presents an end terrace to Halifax Street is named “Darcy Lever Terrace” is typical of the Adelaide style but a great individual example. Constructed in local basalt with mostly timber verandahs they were built in 1878 by Simon Harvey.
The roof is hipped with plain rendered chimneys and double wooden eaves brackets. The terraces have rendered mouldings with keystoned window surrounds, the keystones featuring vermiculation and string course moulding to visually separate the floors at the end terrace. The side facades have a brick pattern while the front facade.
