Greeves’ description:

With a plain brick elevation and small front bay, this type is sometimes found combined with SD6, which has a two-storied front bay surmounted by a timber gabled projection. Both types are based on the same plan, and the cornice is generally timber. Examples: 37 and 39 The Avenue; 48 Bath Road; 10 Bedford Road; 1 and 2 Queen Anne’s Grove; 1,2, 35 and 37 Woodstock Road. Fence: probably a low close boarded fence, radiused at junctions with oak posts, with a panel and turned posts style gate (type C). See Berry F Berry’s lithograph looking east down Bath Road and early postcard of Chiswick School of Art c: 1920 ( J.C.G.)
