Also we rarely see the homes of regulars who live some distance from the street, such as Audrey.
Its been some years now since we saw 5 Grasmere Drive. Izzy lives at 28 Grayling Street, and although we saw inside of her house during a storyline last year or the year before, we never saw the outside. IIRC its only ever been seen once. When Betty Turpin died a few years back they used a real house for the interior of 37 Hillside Crescent, which bore no resemblance at all to the set interior we saw frequently through the 70s, 80s and 90s. During the 80s we also had Gail and Bryan living in Buxton Close, and in the early days Martha Longhurst and Len Fairclough on Mawdsley Street.
Only recent examples are Kayla, who of course is only a guest character and we don't see inside of her house frequently. It was just for the purposes of the storyline. Shame really.
Leanne and Toyah went to view a flat on Tile Street last week - though of course we never saw it exterior or interior.
Having said that, 37 Hillside Crescent changes appearance entirely between 1979 and 1995, by 1995 the staircase wasn't in the same room as the hallway and instead was on the opposite side of the house in a separate room. There also was no longer access to the kitchen from the living room.
