Spying on Gordon House

I am not that tall so all I could see of the side of Gordon House (on Ham Common) over the brick wall as I walked past was the tops of the two gate posts so I pointed my camera blindly over the wall and took this picture on speculation and was rewarded with this view showing more Georgian grandeur than I expected.

I like the way that the wide frontage of the house hides the depth behind and am amused that even those extra rooms are not enough so an extension has been added at the back.
