This is beside the London Loop long distance path on one of its roadside sections.
Deco enthusiasts can find quite a lot of similar places around here in these areas of extensive 1930s development, although mostly the architecture is more like the houses on the right.
These two are on a corner, giving a bit more view from the wrap-round windows.
The following is taken from a site called London footprints:-
"The inter-war period saw the development of large areas of surburbia. Some was in the moderne style but this was less popular than the 'Jacobethan' although some of these houses managed to incorporate Art Deco motifs, especially the sunray. On the same theme the moderne houses featured wrap-around 'suntrap' windows although the internal layouts were the same as in the Jacobethan houses. They may have been less favoured because of the impracticality of their flat roofs, metal windows and white finished exteriors. Flats with streamlined styling were offering a lifestyle and some had communal facilities. The best Art Deco homes are probably those designed for a client such as Eltham Palace."
