Fulham Park Gardens is a unique road within Fulham and possesses varying styles of architecture such as large Victorian semi-detached houses, flat fronted Victorian terrace house and the increasingly prestigious Victorian "Lion House". Along this road where trees start lining the street is where the Lion Houses begin. The first Lion Houses were built by Mr J. Nicholls in the 1980s. Initially built on the grounds belonging to Peterborough House the area soon became known as the Peterborough Estate. The first Lion Houses to come to market were advertised in June 1989 for the princely sum of £300. As popularity grew for Lion Houses as did the demand and prestige they possessed, this led to a lot more being built in the area. The newer builds were often designed larger or even in a completely different variety such as the mansion blocks that line Fulham Park Gardens. The name “Lion Houses” comes from a decision by Mr J. Nicholls during construction to add a stone lion atop each of the buildings and looking over the street. There are circa 930 of the stone lions in Fulham and they now represent an acclaim of their own.
