Lucy Street is part of the Lucy Street Heritage Conservation Area. The land in this vicinity was part of the Ashfield Park Estate, which incorporated a grant made in 1810 to Augustus Alt. Lucy Street is an area developed following a series of subdivisions dating from the Alexandra Crescents Subdivision of 1877 (see plan on the right) , followed by further subdivisions in 1878, 1880 and later. The area contains development from a long period dating from the late Victorian period and extending into the inter-war period, reflecting this varied development history. It is a great walk through for leadlight!
No 3 is an Interwar Bungalow that has a three panel casement window with bevelled glass squares in geometric shapes where coloured glass is absent. Very effective.
