1878 – Villas for Corner Sites, Gunnersbury Estate, London

Architect: R.C. Tomlinson

0193

Illustration showing ground & chamber plans published in The Building News, August 23rd 1878. “This estate is five miles from Hyde-park-corner, and of easy access to town. The District, North-London, South-Western, and Metropolitan railways run on to the Estate. The soil is gravel, and it is well drained. During the past three years this estate has grown very rapidly. The houses are all of the better sort of middle-class residences in various styles. A great deal of Queen Anne’s work is being carried out, and the drawing we illustrate this week is a design for a series of corner houses on the estate. The estimated cost of these houses is £1,100, and the houses are well and substantially built. They are being erected by a local builder, under the superintendence of the architect, Mr. Richard Tomlinson, of Gunnersbury. “
