Nepean Terrace: 128-132 Gipps Street, East Melbourne

Nepean Terrace is a significant early terrace in East Melbourne near the Fitzroy Gardens. Architecturally, it is from an era before iron lacework became popular. Instead the regency style inspired design features a single storey verandah of concave roof with an arcade of arches supported by paired wooden posts. The brackets feature elaborate carvings of floral patterns, as do the party walls and ledges with their finely moulded corbels.

Hazelwood Terrace: 46-48 Howe Crescent, South Melbourne. Melbourne, Victoria

Hazelwood Terrace is a row of three italianate styled, elaborately and ornate stucco terraces. Howe Crescent forms part of the St Vincent Gardens street plan. These terraces were designed prior to the iron lacework trend originally designed by Clement
Hodgkinson for George Black, but with modifications by esteemed architect Charles Webb who designed Melbourne’s famous “Grand” Victorian hotel (now the Windsor).1 With a solid looking brick rendered facade modelled on stone work, this terrace is unique for the treatment of its prominent ground level balcony and arcade of classically inspired doorways.

248-252 Sloane Street. Goulburn, New South Wales

The first in our regional series on Goulburn in New South Wales, this impressive row of three impressive row of three consisting of two triple storey with attic and one single storey currently operates as the Alpine Heritage Motel. It was once a symmetrical arrangement of four terrace houses built in 1872 and modified in 1880. In 1893, the separate houses were conjoined to become a temperance hotel known as “Metropolitan Coffee Palace”1 and later “Stock’s Coffee Palace”.2 The terrace to the left was demolished at a later date and an attic level was added during conversion to accommodation in the 1990s.

57-61 Eaglehawk Road, Ironbark. Bendigo, Victoria

As a lover of both the gold rush city of Bendigo and the variety of terraced housing to be found there it is suprising to find that while heritage overlays exist across most of Bendigo, this single storey row of three homes simply named “Terraces” in suburban Ironbark is afforded no heritage protection.  This is despite an Ironbark heritage study being published as recently as 2010.1

Vaughn Terrace: 49-53 Raleigh Street, Windsor. Melbourne, Victoria

Vaughn Terrace is a delightful little row of three single storey Italianate villas. The terraces feature oversized parapets and ornament typical of the late 1880s. The mid terrace carries the row’s name on its parapet. A most interesting feature of this terrace is the motif on the frieze of overlapping circles which demands visual attention. Located in an area of the City of Stonnington littered in flats and remnant terrace housing, suprisingly there is no heritage overlay for the area offering them little if any heritage protection.1

Moran’s Terrace: 100-104 Mollison Street, Bendigo. Victoria

On the southern edge of Bendigo’s CBD is this gem row of three double storey houses built and named for Maurice Moran in 1873 (as inscribed on the tympanum of the parapet).  Moran was a well known and respected resident who started as a printing foreman for the Bendigo Advertiser, Bendigo City Councillor, real estate developer and agent before moving to Melbourne and later Sydney.1 The design of residential architect T.A Nicholls2 produced a simple but stunning classically inspired row, with the most interesting features being the extensive vermiculation single storey verandah.  Unfortunately it is difficult to photograph due to a mature evergreen situated right in front of the mid terrace.
