I admit to liking brightly painted buildings, although some members of the Victorian Society might cringe at what's gone on here.
But just see the details of the brickwork and ornamentation on what is after all just a suburban end of terrace. The gables,chimneys, the corner window and even the single story bit at the side. Any excuse for a bit of flamboyance.
Reading has so much of this sort of stuff.
I wonder if this was a pub originally. I've tried to make out what's written on the wall under the chimney but it's too far gone.
