Wellington Terrace: 9-15 Wellington Street. Launceston, Tasmania

Launceston is blessed with a wide variety of terrace styles. Wellington Terrace, a row of five homes exhibits a particularly rare variation with its prominent double storey loggia, a terrace style more common in places such as Drummond Street Carlton or East Melbourne. Architecturally it makes a striking statement with minimal ornament, apart from its rythmic row of arches, Italianate balustrade, pilasters and cornice treatment. The loggia and verandah dating to 1911 is likely an addition to the front of an earlier Victorian era terrace given that other architectural features including windows, doors and their mouldings appear to date to the late 1870s to mid 1880s. Another striking feature is its central narrow arched carriageway topped by its pediment name plate which bears its name ‘Wellington Terrace’.
