The Villa and the Bungalow
Much of the older residential accommodation in the Kingsland area falls into two styles, the villa or the bungalow.
The bungalow, from the Hindi for one story house, became popular in the 1920’s. Most have smaller windows than the villa, often with stained glass or leadlight inserts above them. There is a good example of a bungalow at 510 New North Road, near the former Fire Station.
The villa, from the Latin for house, is the older style mostly from the turn of the 20th Century. Most have double hung windows.
