Yet another of those well built houses which had a very short life. Owing to the fact that after the 1914-18 War there were still vacant sites in central Hove (The Drive, Grand Avenue, Holland Road, Palmeira Avenue and others) substantial houses were built with large gardens. This one 23, Palmeira Avenue was built as recently as 1926. The areas and gardens of these houses were such as to make them suitable for redeveloping as flats. This house was demolished in January 1969 after a life of 43 years, and in due course another block of flats will arise here.
