SITE DETAILS

Kenilworth Court Wandsworth

Summary

Kenilworth Court is an Edwardian red-brick and terracotta mansion block of 150 flats in 'exuberant Northern Renaissance/Queen Anne style', which was aimed at professional people and families. A grand entrance arch off Lower Richmond Road leads to an internal courtyard overlooked by the blocks laid out with a communal garden, landscaped with lawns, shrub and flower beds, and an ornamental fountain. There were formerly tennis courts in the courtyard, but these later gave way to parking spaces. Originally let as rented accommodation, between the 1950s and '70s, the residents gradually acquired their individual leases and later jointly acquired the freehold of the whole property. It is now owned and managed by Kenilworth Court Co-ownership Housing Association Ltd.
