ASHFIELD

Clissold Street

Main Period: Federation

Leadlight apparent at No’s 16 & 20

One of the most significant features in Clissold Street is the Cardinal Freeman Village at the Victoria Street end and Ashfield Baptist Homes Village at the Holden Street end.  The construction of units and the retirement/nursing homes means that leadlight can only be seen in two houses at No 16 and No 20 and both of these homes appear to have been built after the 1911 Farleigh Estate subdivision.

Clissold Street

No 16 is a late Federation Era house (c.1918) with an Arts & Craft look about it with a two panel casement window on the verandah and a three panel casement window to the right and both sets have an ‘ovalate’ design with flowers and flowing floral elements in each panel. There is leadlight in the front door panel, sidelight & top and in the fanlight but it doesn’t use the same design as in the windows.
