This row of three Queen Anne style Edwardian terraces now has the same street address and have been divided into several units.
It consists of two symmetrical terraces built right up to the street and a third set back concertina style with a variation in decoration.
This particular row of four double storey terraced homes has always interested me. It appears to be the result of several remodeling efforts and very difficult to date. The original terraces are now obscured but appear to be quite old and plain, perhaps even 1860s or 1870s. Their current form has elements of Queen Anne, bungalow and tudor revival. Possibly the result of an interwar makeover. Sadly, however they have also been significantly altered since.
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.
This row of four double storey Victorian terraces (three pictured) is in Sydney’s inner west. The complete row is difficult to photograph due to the presence of large evergreen trees in front of the second terrace in the row. The suburb of Glebe is heavily gentrified and contains a great number of beautiful heritage buildings.
