8th October '17: Neon flashback

Hello from Colour File HQ.
Near where I lived as a kid, there was a house that was painted in psychedelic neon green, pink, yellow and orange. We called it the ‘Luminous House’ (although I don’t think it actually glowed in the dark) and Mum would occasionally treat me and my brother by driving to see it. I’m sure the neighbours saw it as a hippy eyesore, a blot on the Fulham landscape, but I thought it was a bold and bright work of genius (it also happened to be that my biggest primary school crush lived in that street so there was always the chance I might clap eyes on him, too. *swoon*).
Can anyone else remember seeing this house in Burnthwaite Road SW6 in the 1970s?
