Does anyone know what type of house this is? Built in 1967 orginally with a flat roof, it's timber framed with brick clad ground floor and tiled first floor. Islington London. Local authority housing.

Many thanks!

Address is N1 4AB


Hi Tristan, this has certainly been a challenging address. Unfortunately Islington Council no longer hold any information in relation to the construction type of these properties, probably because all are now in private hands as the result of the Right to Buy Scheme.

The buildings certainly don't match 100% any of the constructions in my record library, although some do have similar vertical tile hangings to the upper elevation, but that's where the similarity appears to end.

Apart from that, I have so far drawn a blank on this property I'm afraid. I have placed a few requests on local community online notice boards etc, but at the time of writing, no one has replied.

If I do find out anything further, I will of course update your question.

@nsh-team Many thanks for looking into this. About half the estate is still council owned.
