Queens Club Gardens

Queens Club Gardens – A much-loved oasis

Queens Club Gardens was built in the late 19th century when an entrepreneurial developer, William Gibbs, acquired the land for his most ambitious project.

He created an estate of 33 blocks of mansion apartments set around central communal gardens and tennis courts. Gibbs’ inspiration was the new Queen’s Sports Club which had opened in the 1880s.

Advertisements for the new apartments described modern amenities such as ‘kitcheners’ (coal-fired ranges with ovens and back boilers to provide hot water), sculleries, coal bunkers, larders, ‘sumptuous decoration’, gas lighting, electric bells, Venetian blinds, and fireproof staircases.

Fast forward more than 130 years, and the development is still as possible as ever.

There are 548 apartments in the 33 blocks, and all are named alphabetically after famous historical characters. The letter X is conspicuously absent.

There is an onsite Estates Office with a dedicated manager, gardeners, and staff who ensure residents enjoy the full benefits of the complex and that there is a well-managed and rolling programme of ongoing maintenance.

We have let and currently manage approximately £25 million of property at Queens Club Gardens and have also sold a great variety of apartments.

These have ranged from the most lavishly appointed one-bedroom apartments to vast un-modernised apartments, which have remained untouched internally for many years. Some of the larger apartments are comparative in size to the four-storey family houses in nearby Archel, Chesson and Turneville Roads.

At Shaws, we pride ourselves on our knowledge and expertise in handling property at Queens Club Gardens, and this is why our clients come back to us time and time again.
