Paddington, terrace houses

These sandstone terrace houses are located along Glenmore Road, in the inner city suburb of Paddington. They were built in 1873 in the Victorian architectural style. The one on the right is known as Manvail Castle.

  3. I do not enjoy Sydney's red bricks for blocks of flats, so I am delighted you highlighted the use of sandstone. It is honey coloured and soft in the sunlight. I would love to ask you to compare your photo to my post on terraces in Paddington - same size? same date?

    thanks for the link

  5. Interesting to see buildings in foreign countries. This building must be very Victorian. Do you know when they were built?

  7. The contrast between the buildings and the fences struct me. They are so different but in one way they work well together. How do you find all these interesting places? #OurWorldTuesday

    1. I like to explore my city. A friend of mine had taken his photo next to the mural I featured yesterday. When I took a trip to photograph it, I discovered these houses just around the corner.

  8. we drove through this area on our way to the SCG when we were in Sydney a few weeks back. If it wasn't so stinking hot I would have asked the taxi to stop so we could walk and look, as it looked so interesting. I hope the weather has settled down for you.
