XL.—No. 5 WESTERN TERRACE
Within the island formed by the beginning of Chiswick Mall, the
northern footway which starts westward from the same point, and Eyot
Gardens which cuts them both, is a cottage of a roughly L-shaped plan,
dating from the 17th century. The projecting wing, which no doubt
originally contained the staircase, turns northwards; the old red brickwork
is of interesting quality, and on the north side there remains an original
mullioned and transomed window of two lights.
The interior of the cottage was remodelled in the 18th century
and contains little of its early character. The front room on the ground
floor is lined with Georgian panelling.
