1–8 Collingham Gardens

1–8 Collingham Gardens are eight Grade II* listed houses in Collingham Gardens in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, London.[1] The houses were built by the firm of Ernest George and Peto between 1883 and 1888.[2] Architecturally, they are representative of late-Victorian individualism.[2]

No 1 Collingham Gardens is a corner house with three frontages, including one on Bolton Gardens.[3] Originally styled "The House of the Seven Gables", The British Architect noted in 1886 that it was "English in character of composition and detail".[3]

No 4 and No 5 Collingham Gardens are Flemish in architectural treatment.[2]

Nos 6, 7, and 8 on the northern end of Collingham Gardens feature tall Dutch gables,[2] which have been called "particularly fine specimens".[4]
