Petrie Mansions: 242-246 Petrie Terrace. Brisbane, Queensland

Petrie Mansions, a row of three double storey terrace houses is possibly Brisbane’s finest Victorian terraced row that remains (partly) residential as one of the houses is privately owned. The Petrie Estate land sale began in 1883 and the majority of the terraces along Petrie Terrace were completed just before the Undue Subdivision of Land Prevention Act 1885 came into full effect, this row was originally known as “Illawarra”.  As a result this fairly intact row of terraces is extremely rare in Brisbane and it is one of just a couple in the entire city.  Many of the terraces built at the time used the sub-tropical Queenslander style hipped corrugated iron roof and Petrie Mansions was no exception.
