Ellendale: 34 Parsons Street, Kensington. Melbourne, Victoria

Ellendale is an outstanding example of an (almost) freestanding Victorian Terrace in inner Melbourne.  With its more unusual features including a high broken round pediment framing the name cartouche in a temple like motif with classical entablature flanked by balustrade, pilasters with rectangular mouldings and spherical urns in unpainted render (although it appears to be missing the central urn inside the broken pediment).  Additionally there are unusual and striking polychrome patterns and banding in cream, brown and red brick.  The whole composition creates the effect of an incredibly commanding and solid looking terrace.
