There are many elements within the different types of houses in Chiswick that have a lot of history behind them. Heathfield Terrace and Grove Park Terrace date back to the early 1800s which show the traditional symmetrical properties, possessing charm and character, often mistaken for a row of terrace houses as they are adjoined by recessed doorways. This style of housing was continued throughout the 1960s in areas like Oxford Road and Cambridge Road and slowly became the Italianate style of semi-detached houses. Strand on the Green and Grove Park Road adopted the medieval and Tudor building styles with gables, carved stone work and turrets. H J Whitman was particularly successful in his use of the vernacular elements such as casement windows and porches. His house designs are found on Barrowgate Road from the early 1900s. Walter Hearn was another local architect working in the same tradition. He built Belfairs (1898) in Grove Park Gardens, in red brick and white rough-cast with beautiful stained glass, bulbous chimneys and a separate coach house.
