Portal into the past, a look at Sydney’s coveted “town homes”

By Danielle Banton

The Old School House…The Old Post Office…The Old Granary – often the only clue to a building’s former life is its name. But occasionally you throw open a door and come face to face with a tangible reminder of times gone by. A jury boxes in a converted courtroom, perhaps, or ancient machinery still at the heart of a mill conversion.

Superb examples of traditional homes in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs are the Victorian terraces or town houses. The idea of town homes was adopted by the English in the 19th Century when it was customary for wealthy families to own both a country house and a house in town to which they and their servants decamped for the social season. You can now find these preserved gems scattered around Sydney’s Cosmopolitan areas such as Paddington, Bondi and Darlinghurst to name a few.

Local Eastern Suburbs agent Richard Carwin had this to say “Traditional terraces are becoming increasingly popular for buyers who are drawn to their charm and elegance”.

If it’s original features you’re after, here is a magnificent example of a Sydney terrace for sale by Ray White Double Bay, showcasing a meticulous preservation of sophisticated period detailing, this beautifully presented dual level terrace provides an ideal family retreat in a coveted Paddington address.
