Not 100% sure there is consensus on how to map it but the topic has come up
before (see here

Example mentioned there is: https://www.openstreetmap.org/way/132932358

There is also a few discussions on the topic:

   - https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Tag:building%3Dterrace
   - https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Talk:Key:addr

My approach would probably be to do the following:

   - Map the terrace and then use the terracing tool to capture the build
   - Use addr:housenumber=* and addr:street=* with addr:street=* using the
   terrace's name, not the nearest road.
   - possibly look at some of the suggested relations mentioned in the talk
   - possibly add the name of the terrace to the terrace outline (similar
   to how you can name landuse=residential areas after the housing estate

Interested to hear thoughts from others...
