This set of interesting row of four double storey terrace houses is directly opposite the University of Sydney in Glebe. Arguably the most interesting aspect of this row is the end terrace.  While elaborate end terraces are typical of later terrace houses in Sydney areas particularly Glebe and Balmain, this one demonstrates a mix of styles.  The end terrace juts out with a large gable decorated with picturesque bargeboards and finial which break the rhythm of the row and it also also features a large italianate style two storey bay window including flat arched windows and keystones over a rusticated stone base.
