This row of six double storey Italianate terraces enscribed “Premier Terrace” (centre parapet), fronts Wentworth Park along the busy but tree lined Wentworth Road in Sydney’s Glebe between Mitchell Street and Park Lane and is serviced by Mitchell Lane.
The style is typical of the Italianate terraces of the late 1870s and early 1880s but more akin to the majority of Melbourne’s terraces. The origin of the name, along with the exact age, architect and builder as though this row is part of the Glebe Conservation area, it is not specifically mentioned in any heritage studies.
Alfred Terrace (or Alfred’s Terrace) is a row of six double storey (with additional basement level) Georgian style sandstone block terraces forming part of a very intact early Victorian streetscape on Sydney’s Kent Street.

This row of six narrow single storey houses is set back from the street and marches gently up Auburn parade. Unfortunately overgrown with trees and difficult to photograph, as such only houses 1-3 are pictured. Each house shares a party wall, but has its own hipped roof and central chimney partially obscured by their parapets. Most likely they were originally a row of modest Italianate villas, however the entire row has had its facade modified, most likely during to the late Edwardian or interwar period, making them fairly difficult to date.
Pembroke Terrace is a row of six Georgian style sandstone terraced houses was built around 1860 and were among the first wave of terraced housing in Surry Hills.
Originally part of a row of 21 houses completed in 1871 most of which has since been demolished, clear photographs of the terrace soon after its completion are some of the best preserved images of the nature of early speculative development in Sydney1 2, even illustrate the use of cast iron bootscrapers and early rainwater systems and attracted a mix of middle class and working class occupants.3
This row of six single storey rendered brick Victorian era terraces is the longest of several single storey rows along Lydiard Street. The row marches down the hill and terminates in an end terrace shop on the Seymour Street corner.
The terraces themselves are wide with a central door with double column support filligree verandahs. The roof features decorated eaves and a visible low pitched profile with two double chimneys each serving four main rooms with fireplaces. The facade appears to have been covered with a floating layer of floating sheet render, perhaps at later some stage which is falling off in many places to reveal red brick beneath.
