Arundel Terrace consists of eight three-storeyed yellow-brick houses, each with a bay-windowed front drawing-room, to the south of Wandsworth Common where the long straight Trinity Road enters the Tooting area. The house which the Hardys injudiciously chose (known as The Larches’) stood in a rather elevated position and exposed at the northern end, ‘where Brodrick Road crosses Trinity Road down towards’ Wandsworth Common railway station. The nearness of the station for journeys to and from London was one of the few advantages the house possessed. It had very little garden and privacy; the main door was on the Brodrick Road side, and let in the cold; and Emma soon discovered that they would need more furniture if they were to entertain as they hoped to do, and invite friends and relatives to stay with them.
