Details

Dover House Road Estate is one of a number of important LCC cottage estates inspired by the Garden City movement and the pioneering town planning of Barry Parker and Raymond Unwin.

The land was previously the estates of two large houses, Dover House and Putney Park House, which were purchased by the LCC soon after WWI. Dover House was demolished for the new estate, but Putney Park House remains.

The common characteristic of the LCC cottage estates is picturesque Arts and Crafts influenced housing, often with exellent brickwork detailing.
It was the intention at Dover House Estate to create housing in groups that overlooked or had access to open space, to provide a sense of intimacy and individuality.

The estate was laid out with cul de sacs, generous verges, street trees and front privet hedging, as well as communal green spaces, the largest of which is The Pleasance Open Space overlooked by a crescent of cottages to the west. Allotments were also provided in three backland areas behind houses, two of which remain, the third subsequently infilled by housing.
