More about 35 Camberwell Grove
Plant-packed 120ft x 20ft garden with the charming backdrop of St Giles Church, the perfect 'borrowed view'. Evolved over 30 years by its owners into a romantic country-style garden brimming with colour and overflowing with pots. In June spectacular old roses, many of them ramblers and climbers, stretch the full length of the winding garden, swamp the artist’s studio and festoon an old iron staircase at the back of the house. Throughout the summer Lynette paints the garden, which has been featured in many prestigious magazines over the years and is particularly popular with Japanese visitors for its quintessential English look.
