|English term or phrase: Victorian town houses |
|Astons Apartments is restored Victorian town houses with a private garden.|
|Large high-class terrace houses of the Victorian period|
A "town house" in Victorian times meant the town residence of a gentleman or family also possessing a "country house" in a rural location. Typical Victorian town houses, as in London, Bath or Bristol, for example, would be part of a terrace of structurally identical houses with several storeys, including a basement level below the ground floor, and servants' quarters at the top.
"Town house" in modern estate-agent jargon means what used to be called a terrace house, and may be a small working-class residence. Such houses are also someimes called "cottages", though they are nothing like cottages in the true sense of the word.
