I always thought that house was attached to another building of some sort...I go past it often and it always looks out of place....but must say it looks better there than it does now, i dont like pebble dash! :-)

My best mate Dave Alibone lived there in the 70s and 80s... it is so odd to see it like that. We used to have some marathon Monopoly games in the kitchen! I will have to drop him an email to show him this.
