Sometimes adaptive reuse can be a bad thing and this complex in tree lined Park Street is a prime example.
While it was not uncommon for terraces to have their balconies built in to create more room, this early 1980s curtain wall job to create 24 apartments from 4 large terrace houses is more than a little brutal.
This picture shows 301-303 Beaconsfield Parade, a dainty single storey row of three Edwardian terraces. Pictured is a real estate sign declaring “no heritage overlay”. The terrace is located in the City of Port Phillip, however without any heritage protection this row may yet become victim to the current rampant overdevelopment of this prime beachfront address. Edwardian terrace rows (longer than a semi detached pair) are quite rare in this part of Melbourne and in Melbourne as a whole.
