121-125 Wattle Street, Bendigo. Victoria

This pair of terrace houses, among the most impressive double fronted double storey renaissance revival terraces I have seen in Australia is currently recovering from severe 1960s bastardisation.  Until recently an unfortunate 60s reno had resulted in poorly maintained lacework was enclosed by wood, demolition of the third in the row to be replaced by a block of dog-box flats and the whole facade obscured by paperbark trees. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of these terraces is that they have full verandah facades on both sides with a rare long parallel double hipped roof.
