Elizabeth Street is one of the ‘old’ streets in Ashfield. Elizabeth Street was named after the eldest daughter of John Underwood who owned much of the land around Ashfield. Subdivisions occurred from 1881 – 1914. As a result it has dwellings constructed in the 1880’s through to the current period. There are two storeyed mansions, terraces, Federation homes and Californian Bungalows, Interwar flats and lots of 60’s, 70’s & 80’s units.

Elizabeth Street

No 19 is a Californian Bungalow that retains excellent examples of how convex circles are used effectively in casement windows and verandah doors. There is a small window with the same design but without the convex glass on the verandah.
