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.
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.
