A beautiful examples of a nineteenth century three storey terrace house in Australia, 'Tasma Terrace' was built in 1879 for wealthy grain merchant George Nipper as a stylish family home. In 1970, this unique building faced demolition to make room for hi-rise towers before the National Trust stepped in to restore and preserve this unique terrace house.
