Main Period:  Interwar

Knocklayde Street was subdivided in 1925 and was described as the Hammond Park Estate. It is a street of Californian Bungalows and to some extent resembles several of the streets in Ashbury that were subdivided at the same time (e.g. Roslyn, Cheviot & Kelvin Streets). Many of the leadlight designs windows show the strong influence of the Federation style while others indicate the influence of the modernistic look of Art Deco.

Knocklayde Street

No 1 is a Californian Bungalow and has two sets of three panel casement windows with lots of geometric shapes and minimal use of colour acknowledging the influence of the modern.
