The gardens here are named after the family home of Miss Jane Benyon of Gledhow Hall in Yorkshire, who married landowner Captain Robert Gunter in the 19th century.
This area was originally market gardens and there was once a thriving village located between Gledhow and Bina Gardens.
Originally separate back gardens for the surrounding Victorian villas, these gardens were joined to form a communal garden by the Gunter Estate management. The clean microclimate has nourished some of the oldest and healthiest trees in London. There is a range of interesting wildlife, including a variety of rare bird species.
Gledhow Gardens was established during the second half of the 19th century on land forming the Gunter Estate.
Many of the houses surrounding Gledhow Gardens were constructed by the builder John Spicer, responsible for much of the building development on the Gunter Estate including Bolton Gardens, Courtfield Gardens and Wetherby Gardens.
Over the last two years, the average price for an apartment here is £1,534 per sq ft and the best price achieved was £1,972 per sq ft – not much bigger than your computer screen!

The communal garden is almost tropical with a dense tapestry of tall plane trees; which does make it dark at times but also gives it a magical privacy, as if you were suddenly in a fairy tale forest. There’s a wonderful children’s playground here too.
Residents of Gledhow Gardens have the right to apply for a key fob to the communal gardens and retreat into the serenity of the square.
No sorry, no dogs here, plenty of squirrels and birds though.
