Oaklands Close, Petts Wood, c. 1935


Oaklands Close is a good example of (modified) chalet style houses.

They contrast with other properties in the area, many of which are mock-Tudor in character.

The road was built in the early 1930s and its desirability would have been enhanced as it was a cul-de-sac.

The generous scale of the houses was typical of those of Petts Wood's earlier development.
