MID VICTORIAN 1860 To 1875

While retaining a similar form to its earlier Victorian precursors, this era of house design is distinguished by a greater level of ornamentation. There is an increased use of block fronted weather boards, while decorative brickwork is prevalent in fashionable houses of the period. Verandahs, particularly those with timber frames, are common and often incorporate cast iron lacework and patterned tile floors.

Fences feature more complex picket and post profiles.
Cast iron palisade pickets with bluestone or rendered plinth and cast iron columns are starting to appear.
