Almost all the houses in Brereton Avenue are from the original subdivision of the Brereton Estate in 1910.

1910  Brereton's Estate, Marrickville -

This 1910 subdivision shows Brereton Avenue and teh site of the Australian Woolen Mills.

All lots in Brereton Avenue were auctioned as part of Brereton’s Estate in 1910. Almost all of the dwellings are Federation homes constructed before the start of World War 1. The subdivision plan shows the Australian Woolen Mills were located opposite the northern end of Brereton Avenue adjacent to Wilkins Public School. The Mills have long been deomlished. The leadlight that exists is in the only Californian bungalow in the street.
