‘Douglas’ former 80 Homebush Road Strathfield

By Cathy Jones

Many people remember and ask about the Grogan house which was located on the corner of Homebush Road and Redmyre Road Strathfield.  

The house was called ‘Douglas’ and was demolished in 1995.


  1. Cathy, I love these research snippets!I know how much time and effort goes into work like this.Thank you for keeping the history of the area. As you know my paternal history was lo ked up on Hammersmith Street Flemington.No houses left to show.I am pleased I have  some photos of my grandparents house. I think it was number 42 then  number nine.RobynSent from my Galaxy


  2. I notice that you have been recently researching properties in Homebush Road and I wonder if you could possibly assist me in my search for information regarding 33 Homebush Rd Strathfield.
    I lived in a property that was accessed by a driveway down the side of said property in the 1960s. It was a 3 bedroom bungalow and it appears from local records that the land belonging to 33 Homebush Rd was subdivided in the 1950s.
    I have searched old maps and records and can’t find any trace of the bungalow.
    Thank you
    Mrs Jill Hawksworth


    1. Jill, I Have looked previously for this property and never found anything about a rear property. I’ll have another look and see I can find anything. Cathy


      1. Thank you Cathy – I would appreciate it and look forward to seeing any information you find. Jill
