1-2 Warren Ball Avenue, Newtown. Sydney, New South Wales

Sydney’s Newtown has many impressively intact rows of Victorian terrace houses on relatively flat terrain and this terrace forms part of an impressive row or eight overlooking Hollis Park which was formerly known as L’Avenue.  These end terraces, tall for two storeys, are in the distinctive Queen Anne style terrace has a fanciful gothic feel thanks to its tall gables with frilly wooden bargeboards and tall wooden finials on a steep slate roof.  The roof features tall picturesque chimneys complete with patterned mouldings.  The two gables frame a large bay window which goes up the full two storeys with a small slate roof in the gable. The terraces are mirrored at the other end of the row, which has taller Italianate houses in between, however 7 and 8 have been substantially compromised and barely recognisable with enclosed verandahs and other later additions.
