Ravenswood Terrace

Ravenswood, Sydney

Ravenswood is a 2-storey mid-Victorian terrace overlooking Prince Alfred Park in central Sydney. The terrace was originally one-half of a pair that were built sometime after 1875. Its partner has since been demolished, and the single house is now sandwiched between a 6-storey and 10-storey building.

Original features such as the Kauri floors, cedar doors, staircase and marble fireplaces remain.

Prince Alfred Park was once home to the Prince Alfred Exhibition Building (c1870). Sadly, it was demolished in 1954 and replaced with an ice-skating rink and swimming pool.

The terrace was scheduled to go up for auction on March 26, but sold prior for $1,405,000.

It is on a 186 sqm block with a 6m wide frontage.
