Numbers 1 to 7 Grand Avenue must have been Collins's shop window, as they were the first houses to be seen when approaching the estate from Highgate. He made them as big and impressive as he could, giving Number 1 an attractive semi-circular bay to make up for its lack of a back garden. Number 3 became Collins's estate office and was no doubt a show house.
