Crescent Garden in Warrington Crescent, Maida Vale, London W9
- by CityWest Residential
If you’re looking for some calm amidst the bustle and you’re a resident of an adjoining Maida Vale property, Crescent Garden will prove a welcome retreat.
Recent accolades include an award for London's best large private garden square, Crescent Garden is a three-acre communal garden, just off Warrington Crescent. It is surrounded by stucco-fronted houses dating from around 1860 - 1880, including a grade II-listed balconied terrace. The area was bombed in WW1, when enemy planes mistook the canals of Little Venice for the river Thames.
In the 1970s local residents defeated plans by the Church Commissioners to turn the garden into communal car parking. Today it has lawns, a fine set of interesting trees, island beds and many unusual plants and shrubs.
The garden is managed by the Garden Committee. Anything and everything that goes on in the garden is discussed and agreed at regular committee meetings. As long as you can prove you are a resident of an adjoining property, each household is entitled to one key.
Crescent Garden has a well stocked herb garden with rosemary, bay leaves, thyme and other seasonal herbs available for residents to pick and enhance their culinary delights.
For children, there is a play area with swings and a slide. Children under 10 can play football, cricket and other sports in the garden as long as they aren’t too noisy and do their best to avoid sending balls flying into the flower beds!
Enjoy a day-time private party in a stunning setting. In the interests of other residents, if you wish to have more than 16 guests, you will need to confer with the managing agent. Dogs are welcome, as long as they are on a lead when they decide to roam from your side.
For entrance, there are three gates accessing the garden: Warrington Crescent Gate, Randolph Crescent Gate and Randolph Avenue Gate. For information on property for sale or to rent near Crescent Garden in Maida Vale, please contact CityWest Residential, leading estate agents in Westminster.
