Crescent Grove, Clapham, south London

Tucked away just beyond the North East corner of Clapham Common, Crescent Grove is a secluded pocket of well-preserved Georgian homes, dating from the 1820s, overlooking a green peppered with mature trees. On one side, a stately terrace curves gracefully round the open communal garden. On the opposite side, there are handsome semi-detached homes complete with iron railings and classical doorways. Period lampposts add to the timeless atmosphere - only the parked cars mar the overall affect. 7/10
