A grand wall for a modest house

It is hard to describe this wall without using the word pretentious. Most of the properties along this stretch of Petersham Road have low brisk walls, often with an undulating top. Only this house has gone for the Full Monty with large brick pillars, stone finials and gold-topped railings. The overall effect is completely out of keeping with the house and the rest of the street.

Regular readers (there are some!) may remember that this house also featured here a few months ago for having a very boring front garden.
