Designation summary

The special architectural and historic interest of this area can be summarised as: An area of individually designed detached and semi-detached houses dating from the 1850s set in a mature landscape on the edge of Richmond Park.

Historic background summary

The development of Liverpool Road and Crescent Road is shown on maps as far back as 1868 with substantial completion by the turn of the 20th century. The earlier Victorian houses are two storey, detached, elegant houses with sweeping roofs and rich in detailing. Front gardens are well planted with shrubs and trees and front boundaries are mostly intact.

More recent development in this conservation area includes Heatherdale Close - a 1970s development of six blocks of 3-storey town houses following the demolition of the Victorian Meadow House as well as Windmill Rise and Dutch Gardens which were developed in 1986 in the grounds of what was Kingsnympton Hall.
