Manor Fields, on Putney Hill in south-west London,
is a private estate of 228 spacious flats in fourteen houses created in the 1930s as homes of quiet refinement. It combines touches of Tudor and Jacobean architecture and influences of the arts
and crafts movement. The twelve-acre estate contains the third-biggest private garden in London,
offering peace and quiet amid lawns, woodland and an ornamental pond. The estate has a colourful history, including being on the site of the house where Thomas Cromwell, Henry VIII’s chief minister, was born. It is a short walk from Putney Heath, Wimbledon Common and the thriving town centre of Putney with its shops, restaurants, pubs and cinema.
