It’s no wonder the terrace house has experienced a renaissance during Australia’s property boom.

Decorative, charming and requiring less maintenance than a free-standing house, the terraces lining Sydney and Melbourne’s inner CBD streets hold serious cache.

Victoria terrace houses were at one time criticised for encouraging the formation of slums, but enjoyed a renaissance in the 1960s as the inner city became gentrified.
