Amongst all the redevelopment in the Docklands there are occasional pockets of older buildings. Against the backdrop of the New Providence Wharf development is this terrace of Edwardian houses, viewed across Preston's Road. They were built by the former London County Council in 1904 as part of a scheme to provide social housing as cottage estates rather than the unpopular block dwellings. Originally there were 14 two-bedroom cottages but a 1960s modernization scheme converted them to 8 houses. The darkish green one is currently advertised for sale with four double bedrooms at about 460,000. The terrace is now Grade II listed.
