The aim of this paper is to clarify the formation process and the character of the terraced house district in Paddington, Australia. The common features of the external design of terraced houses in this area include small-scale homes of two or three floors, a narrow frontage, a rear extension, front and back yards, offset from the main street, with a veranda on the ground floor and a balcony on the first floor. The partition walls of the terraced houses also act as part of the fire walls, as well as dividing two homes and the structure of the house and balcony. The widths of the frontages range from 10 feet to 20 feet, and it is presumed that several lots of land (20 feet wide×105 feet depth) were consolidated into a single plot and the plural number of houses were then built on the site. Moreover we discuss the continuity and similarity of the main and rear elevations. When we picked up the "unit", namely continuous, as well as similar houses, it became clear that the units of terraced houses composed in blocksof two to six houses each and more than half the total number of units were comprised of pairs of houses. Moreover, the rear elevation showed no evidence of continuity and similarity.
