#SydneyTerraceHouses Fine, unusual pair of terraces, curiously named Elizabeth Place, in Bourke St Surry Hills (1887). Atypical grandeur, with very high parapet & centrepiece. Inset rather than projecting verandas at booth levels, built to the street alignment @cityofsydney #surryhills #bourkestreetsydney #insetverandahs #streetfront #streetwall #sydneyterraces #elizabethpace #parapet #architectureofhousing #sydneyarchitecture

#SydneyTerraceHouses With 22 in the row, this whole block on east side of Baptist St Redfern is eq 11th longest @cityofsydney. But not so easy to spot, as has alternating pattern of 4 projecting parapeted pairs, interspersed with more usual verandah-ed terraces. The centre terrace has an inscription & bust on its front piece; Kent Terrace 1892. Also shops @ nth end accorded with old tram stop. Rear facade with regular chimneys to lane also fine. #baptiststreet #redfern #eastredfern #sydneyterraces #longestrowofterraces #streetwalll #alternatingpattern #verandahs #pediments #parapets #urbanhousing #sydneyarchitecture #australianarchitecture
