Millers Point, houses

These heritage listed terrace house duplexes are located along High Street, in the inner city suburb of Millers Point. They are a part of a group of early twentieth century workman's terraces built around 1911 in the Federation architectural style, as part of the post plague redevelopment by the Sydney Harbour Trust. They have been used as public housing since 1986 but the state government recently started selling these valuable properties with harbour views to fund new public housing developments.

  10. Nice looking buildings with some good fencing. The slats are really close together.

  11. That's what we call gentrification. We can only hope the government gets a good price for the real estate and uses the money wisely.

    (Usually it just goes to tax cuts for rich people...then they come back and say, sorry, the coffers are empty. Benefit cuts time again!)

  15. Oh, I hope whoever buys them has to keep their heritage. It would be fun to see them all fixed up... not that they look bad now.
