The Glebe Estate contains numerous long and uniform rows of single and double storey terraced homes, many very similar in style and most featuring similar roof features. Pictured is part of a row of thirteen single storey Victorian terraced homes on Mitchell Street.
These terraced houses are part of the Emerald Hill Estate, an entire block that was formerly occupied by the Melbourne Protestant Orphan Asylum between 1855 until 1877 and since 1974, has been government buildings and public housing. This particular row is one of South Melbourne’s longest and most intact.
Not sure if the terraces at 82-102 Victoria Street in Potts Point have a name but the row of 13 would almost certainly have to be the longest row of three storey terraces in Australia in one of the most beautiful and interesting streets you will find in this country.
