Title
Oakdene in Christchurch Road
Description
Oakdene at 105 Christchurch Road, Sheen, was designed by TE Collcutt, the Arts and Crafts architect whose work includes a number of significant London landmarks inlcuding the Imperial Institute, the Lloyd's Register of Shipping, the Savoy Hotel, and the Palace Theatre. It was built in 1884 for James Gandy and is the most important of four surviving nineteenth-century grand houses in the Sheen Common Drive conservation area of Richmond-upon-Thames. It is listed locally as a Building of Townscape Merit. Its grounds adjoin the woodland of East Sheen Common to the north of Richmond Park. This conservation area otherwise exemplifies a planned 1920s estate built on open ground, consisting mostly of two-storey houses built between 1925 and 1932. This view, substantially obscured by a perimeter wall, fence, and foliage, neverthess shows some of Oakdene's refined proportions and ornamental features, most of which are believed to have remained unaltered.
