A lot of people in Britain live in detached or semi-detached properties. They are brick houses in various styles. The exteriors are like works of art: steep slate roofs, stained glass panels in doors and windows, iron railings and tall chimney pots.They also have basements and attics. Most terraced houses were built in the mid 18th century for people who came to work. The houses were joined together to save space.
Huge block of flats were built during the 1950th and 1960th in the district with high crime rate. In the suburbs or villages where there is a lot of greenery bungalows are set. Retired or elderly people are often their residents.
