Pyrmont has some impressive long stretches of terrace houses. While the vast majority were built in Sydney’s Harris and Macarthur estates during the 1870s and 1880s with decorative iron lace, some earlier sandstone georgian working class terraces survive. The fact that this working class row of ten was built in brick as early as 1860 sets it apart.
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.
With a picturesque setting at the feet of the Sydney Harbour Bridge by the harbour this row of ten triple storey houses with sunken English style basements known as “Milton Terrace” built in 18801 and includes individually named terrace homes including Kia-Ora (17), Chelsea (15) and Surrey (13).
