Does anyone know anything about the new houses built on Dunstans Road, near forest hill road? They are built ages but it remains like a building site. Are they ever to go on the market?

The guy that threw these up needs a good doctor, I think. Look like late 80s/early 90s builds of the worst kind. I'm unsure on the planning situation and guess anyone nearby would have said no way to the current "product." Perhaps he ran out of cash halfway through the build and that would have been when the market began cooling back in 2016. If I had the money I'd probably knock them down and start again! Shame really.

Yes I agree about their design - I cannot see how they meet planning regs re outdoor space. I rather liked the old stable block that was there before.

They're horrible. Such a wasted opportunity to build something interesting in a great location.

“Interesting” doesn’t make profit !
I got the impression driving past the last couple of years that it was a builder’s side-project, which he was progressing with his team inbetween client work.
As per above I couldn’t see why there will be a delay otherwise.

Terrible. And it looks like they didn't consider access on the left hand side, hence the odd, bluff wall on the roof.

I walk past those most days and I'm unable to fathom who in their right mind chooses doors like those. Hideous doesn't come close. And clearly they'll all need steps up to the front door, too, which they needn't have required.

Cheap and ugly.

Yes, I have to look at these every day and they are so depressing. I've heard that the houses are still incomplete because the developer died.

I saw a man clearing stuff in the front garden the other day. No activity since.

Such a strange waste of land on a great road. The houses look tiny - I think either 2 houses, or flats would be better suited to the space - fair enough if they're affordable, but they're no good to anyone in their current state!
