The garden square reborn
SOME say that, once you move to a garden square, you’re there for life. It’s easy to see why: squares are a haven of peace and quiet in the busy city, a quadrangle of good design, with your very own garden in the middle.
Now, in Earls Court, London SW6, at the junction of Kensington, Chelsea and Fulham, a new garden square is beginning to take root. Following the sellout success of Lillie Square, which launched in 2014, Lillie Square East, with its 186 luxury apartments, boasts an 80m (590ft) landscaped garden by seven-time Chelsea gold medal designer Andy Sturgeon.
This is no ordinary garden square set-up, but one of a new generation: each lucky household has access to a 20,000sq ft residents’ clubhouse with its own private spa, cinema room and concierge service. Apartments start from £795,000 (020–7381 9800; www.lilliesquare.com). ED
