According to a local government leaflet (see below): The St Andrew's Square area is an area of Victorian housing dating from "the 1860s-1880s, in Gothic and Italianate styles, including a garden square unique to south west London. It was a later phase of the Surbiton "New Town" begun in 1838 by Thomas Pooley." The square itself has only recently been restored, and most of the single-family homes have been split into separate flats.
