Notable features

The terrace at 356-358 Victoria Parade, East Melbourne is a pair of houses built in rendered brick and sandstone by Abraham Linacre in 1857. The ground floor is treated as a rusticated arcade of six equal bays divided from the upper storey by a strong moulded string course. The first floor windows have moulded architraves and bracketed sills. On the upper floor quoins support a bracketed cornice. A parapet with a simple pediment conceals the slate tiled roof. An iron-railing fence separates the tiled verandah from the street. The eastern facade to Clarendon Street has no rustication, but has quoins on both floors and a pair of windows on the upper floor. The parapet continues from the front. The chimneys have heavy cornices and terracotta chimney pots.

A rare Melbourne terrace in the Regency style and elegantly executed. One of a handful of pre-boom terraces which take design keys from London Regency town houses.
