Colville Gardens (Kensington & Chelsea)

Brief Description

Colville Gardens was built as part of the development in the area by Dr Samuel Walker, which he commenced from the 1850s. He was somewhat beset by financial problems, which resulted in delays to building Colville Square, Terrace and Gardens, which took place from 1860. The area later became run down and was eventually rehabilitated in the 1960s. There is a strip of communal landscaping for residents of 'Pinehurst Court', with lawns, mature trees and shrubbery, railed to the road.
