Pairs and rows of houses by the same builder are common feature of Victorian suburbs.
Allen Street includes several intact rows with very distinctive features. Nos 3-13 (1893) are six asymmetrical villas with lush gardens and deep verandahs, ornamented with tiles, iron lace and pillars. No 11, Mulloon, has art nouveau glazed tiles on the step risers. Nos 32-4 (1911), a mirror duplex, have octagonal roughcast turrets on each end and delicate art nouveau stained glass flowers in both windows and doors. The paths and verandahs are of small tesselated tiles and the fences wrought iron. Nos 48-52 have polychrome facebricks, alternating light and dark courses, and cloud-like swirls in the bargeboards of the gables. The tall chimneys are roughcast, and there are terracotta finials on the roof ridges.
