195 Adderley Street, West Melbourne. Victoria

This is a great little freestanding terrace on the fringe of Melbourne’s CBD which shows a free spirited approach to design.  The house is rich in textures, materials and ornament.  There are even cherub statuettes on the party walls, something quite rare for Australian terrace houses.  The terrace has an intricate “Hawthorn brick” facade.  Refined details focused on the chimney, cornice and party walls.

There are several rows of terraces lining Park Street and overlooking the northern end of Royal Park, however this row of five is probably the most distinguished. What differentiates this row is their width and that mirror each other in a row of perfect symmetry.  Each house has high parapet marked by a triangular pediment framed by scroll corbels and flanked by large decorative urns in the italianate style which effectively hides hipped roofs.
