‘Bogan’ is often used as a disparaging epithet in Australia but there is nothing about Bogan Street that is bogan. Bogan Street did not appear on the 1878 Subdivision of the Underwood Estate but it did appear in a later re-subdivision of the Underwood Estate in 1880 and the lots would have been attractive because of their proximity to the station. Now, Bogan Street is part of the C47 North Summer Hill, Summer Hill Conservation Area. The street consists mainly of Victorian detached and semi-detached terrace housing of one and two storeys. Bogan Street is a very short street and as you walk down the hill it is definitely from the Victorian era. Houses built in the early 1880’s rarely had leadlight, preferring etched glass.
Bogan Street is not shown on the 1878 Subdivision of the Underwood Estate but it is shown two years later in a subsequent re-subdivision.
No 10 Bogan street is a rare example of weatherboard cottage described as Victorian Rustic Gothic.
No 4 is an Arts & Crafts Californian bungalow probably built around 1922 with leadlight in the fanlight above the front door.
