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.
Now, many rows of terrace houses are heritage-protected, with buyers clambering to snap them up.
Here are the best terraces on realestateVIEW.com.au this week.
