Do you mean terrace houses? Or jsut houses in general? Generally houses don't realy have front gardens as most people would prefer a larger back garden that a front garden.

Well, that's quite a difficult one, there are many different types of houses but here are some typical examples.

Semi-detached in suburban London



Oast house in Kent (These were originally for brewing beer but many have been converted into houses)



Thatched Cottage in the Cotswolds



Typical contemporary provincial housing developments











Victorian Terraced house in Shrewsbury



inside the kitchen



Georgian terrace in Bath



Typical victorian terrace of houses in Manchester



Scottish cottage



Welsh stone house

I think the reason people have bigger gardens at the back is that they have more privacy that way :dunno:

mind you, actually i did my own research on google or whatever search engine you may call it.as always it shows the real estate not much photos actually. i also looked at several british home magazine e.g house beautiful,british house. unfortunantely it shows general view of the outside and most pictures are inside like kitchen , living room etc.
