Bondi, Como and Manly 44-48 Carlisle Street, St Kilda. Melbourne, Victoria

This small row of three single storey terraces named for Sydney harbourside suburbs is an interesting transitional style between Victorian and Edwardian displaying a compact arrangement of eclectic features. The terraces have iron lacework and slate roof tiles of high Victorian terraces, but the red brick and gables of the Queen Anne style in a symmetrical Palladian layout.

40 Gertrude Street, Fitzroy. Melbourne, Victoria

This row of three Queen Anne style Edwardian terraces now has the same street address and have been divided into several units. It consists of two symmetrical terraces built right up to the street and a third set back concertina style with a variation in decoration. The main feature of each house, constructed of “blood and bone” red brick and render is the central half timbered gable projecting from the hipped terracotta tile capped roof.

92-95 Howard Street, North Melbourne. Victoria

I find this short row of five unnamed Edwardian terraced houses very interesting. Firstly because Edwardian terraces are rare in Melbourne and this is an intriguing example as it has some pretty unusual design elements for a  Melbourne terrace. The way that the end terrace sports a variation in design and faces in a different direction adds significant asymmetry, interest and intrigue to an otherwise symmetrical row of houses. The row marches up the slight incline of Howard Street not unlike a row of Sydney terraces, but so discretely you almost wouldn’t notice.  The fins of the roof are exposed are also much more akin to Sydney Victorian era terraces than Melbourne.  The striking red brick form of the walls, terracotta tiled gable roofs with their row of ridge capping and picturesque chimneys dotted with rows of squat pots all set it apart from the majority Victorian Italianate terraces in the area.

308-312 Neill Street. Soldiers Hill. Ballarat, Victoria

This small row of three red brick Queen Anne style terraces is unusual for Ballarat. While the marching down the hill style is similar to many in Soldiers Hill, the cute terraces of this row are unusually tiny and thin for Ballarat terraces, like miner or workers cottages. The size could possibly explained by their proximity to the railway station and the typically small blocks of the surrounding subdivision in Soldiers Hill.

Bland Terrace: 14-32 Bland Street. Woolloomooloo. Sydney, New South Wales

Bland Terrace takes its name from the street it is on, Bland, and is exactly that.  The row of 10 double storey late Edwardian (depression era) terraces are a little plain and nondescript, saved for its wooden and corrugated iron awnings and balconies and the horizontal bands of black bricks and cornice which define the facades.
