Summer Hill

Rosemount Avenue

Main Period: Federation - Interwar

Leadlight apparent at No’s 1, 2, 6, 9, 12, 13, 14, 15, 18, 20 & 23.

 Most of the houses in Rosemount Avenue were built in the Federation years after the lots were sold in 1908 as part of the Prospect Hall Estate Summer Hill Estate by Stanton & Sons and several. There are a few early Californian bungalows in the street in between the Federation homes and those with leadlight provide an insight into how leadlight designs evolved over a ten to fifteen year period.

Rosemount Avenue part of the 'Prospect Hall Summer Hill Heritage Conservation Area'.  The street 'has aesthetic significance deriving from the 1908 subdivision pattern with little re-subdivision since, and the original building covenants applying to the subdivision, resulting in an aesthetically consistent subdivision of wide streets with grass verges'  Draft Comprehensive Inner West DCP 2016, P.337. 

Not only have the houses been largely preserved but so has their beautiful Federation and Interwar leadlight.

No 1 is a Federation house (c.1910) with leadlight light in the sidelight & top and in the fanlight. The leadlight is a particularly good example of Federation Art Nouveau leadlight.
