Former Lonsdale House: 470-502 Lonsdale Street. Melbourne, Victoria

This rare pair of three storey terraces is one of a handful of original terraces remaining in the Melbourne Central Business District (CBD) and has had an interesting life.  It was originally designed by prominent architect Lloyd Tayler.  Shortly after its constuction in 1886 the terraces were converted into a private hospital known as Lonsdale House.  It was used for a brief time by the navy during World War I, served as a music academy, nurses hostel and again a hospital during World War II.   After the war it became the offices of the Australian Broadcasting Commission (ABC) before being absorbed into the construction of the County Court complex in the 1990s.

Drummond Terrace: 93-105 Drummond Street, Carlton. Melbourne, Victoria

Drummond Terrace (built 1890-1891 to the design of Walter Scott Law) is the longest and largest three storey terrace row in Melbourne in one of Carlton’s most terraced wide streets.  The row of seven triple storey terraces features long rendered loggia of round arches and balustrades, notably deviating from the popular filligree style of the period. A central free classical pediment and blind porthole marks the mid terrace, while interesting false chimney motifs mark the mid point of each individual terrace in the row.

2-4 Sir John Young Crescent, Woolloomooloo. Sydney, New South Wales

This most unusual row of three storey terraces is in a prominent but in the most unfortunate position.  Set on arguably Sydney’s busiest junction, wedged between the Eastern distributor, entrance to the Cross City Tunnel Northbound and Cahill Expressway and the overpass of the Bondi railway line (which presumably cuts through what may have been an extended streetscape at some stage).  It is extremely difficult to photograph !

Sobraon: 17-21 Ormond Street, Paddington, New South Wales

Sobraon is a magnificent row of three storey terrace houses in Paddington, Sydney is an unusual Italianate composition.  The name could have come from a clipper of the same name which was regularly moored at Rose Bay between 1867-1871 and the largest composite ship ever built1 (itself named for a war in Punjab India in the 1840s) the sails and masts which may well have once been visible in the distant harbour from the rear of these homes.  The mid terrace is notably wider than either flanking terrace.
