Fairholme Estate Hounslow

Summary

Fairholme Estate is a low-rental housing development in Arts and Crafts style built by T Cecil Howitt as a result of a bequest by Elizabeth Jones, a resident of Fulham. It consists of 72 houses set around a large quadrangle and communal garden. The one- and two-storey houses have a variety of Dutch gables and tile-hung walls; the community hall has a central colonnade and clock tower. The well kept gardens fronting onto Staines Road have shrubberies and ornamental beds, with a carved sundial on the lawn near the main entrance.
