Art Deco Buildings

I'll dig out some deco later, but for the mean time as this is an architecture thread, I've posted this image which is likely to amuse viewers, of a property I recently came across on Google street view whilst looking at the details of an adjacent/opposite house for sale. It has what must surely be one of the most ridiculous conservatory extensions ever constructed, and there's people sitting down to the left admiring it.

I feel fully justified in having uploaded it now. That's the same conversation those seated people to the left are probably having.

In an area almost entirely occupied by 1930's built semi's (several thousands of them) of the style seen in the rest of this street, for some reason there were a pair of Art Deco semi's in Seaforth Gardens just a few hundred yards from where we lived. This is Stoneleigh, a few miles from Epsom, Surrey. Number 51 has had its Critals replaced in the two main front windows. As children we were mystified by these houses and had thoughts of them being occupied by characters similar to those that appeared in Smash advertisements.

I used to work in Stoneleigh, even the small shopping parade there is so "1930s". I used to think that Stoneleigh was a figment of a comic strip writers imagination. Yes they're lovely houses, even time I see one when I'm out and about in the UK I try to stop, photograph it and find out more about the building, they usually have some interesting history. I wonderful moment in architectural times 😀

There's not many places to work in Stoneleigh so out of curiosity where was it? At a guess I'd say on The Broadway, a unit in Dell Lane, or a school? Stoneleigh was a town built on farm land from the 1930's onwards as you say. The area radiating Stoneleigh, which would included Ewell, Worcester Park, and Motspur Park, Cheam, and the approach to Sutton from that direction, has a remarkably consistent design of housing. Regarding a comic strip writers location, there was a sitcom filmed at one of the houses between and including 10 to 16 in this street image, anyone know what it was? There's something rare here because house number 54 is actually a Clandon Close address even though it's situated well into Kenilworth Road! The house to the right of it is 16 Kenilworth Road.

On the subject of Stoneleigh, how pathetic is this? The sign outside the pub depicts a GWR Railway scene at a busy junction station, yet is placed directly outside a L&SWR/SR station which has a single island platform and the only siding it ever had didn't last long and was only during the towns construction. There was never a goods yard here, Ewell East, Ewell West, and Worcester Park were the nearest 3 with such facilities.
