575, WANDSWORTH ROAD,SW8 Is this London’s quirkiest address? It’s what’s on the inside that counts: 575, Wandsworth Road, might look like a modest terraced house from the street, but inside, every available surface has been embellished with hand-carved fretwork patterns and motifs. The artist? Kenyan-born poet, novelist, mathematical philosopher and British civil servant, Khadambi Asalache. He purchased the house in 1981, when working at the Treasury—slowly turning it into a work of art over 20 years. The property was acquired by the National Trust in 2010. Tours are intimate and limited to protect the delicate interiors; to book, telephone 0344 249 1895 www.countrylife.co.uk…

life imitates art

A GHOST haunts the streets of Shoreditch. It’s Jane Shore, beloved mistress of Edward IV and one of the brightest stars of his Court —until Richard III ascended to power and threw her into Ludgate prison. Old, destitute and wretched, she went on to roam the East London parish, where she died tragically in a ditch, bequeathing the place its name: Shoreditch. There is no substance to this tale—after her stint in jail, Mistress Shore married and led a comfortable life—and, far more prosaically, Shoreditch appears to owe its name to an unidentified ditch by a riverbank. But the heart-wrenching story is a much better fit for the artistic nature of an area that, over the centuries, has nurtured Shakespeare, Charlie Chaplin and dozens of more contemporary artists. ‘Shoreditch became the stomping…

the ups and downs

• Residents love the choice of bars and restaurants: from ‘larger-than-life’ Italian trattoria Gloria, recommended by Charlie Smith of London Real Estate Advisors, to The Frog Hoxton’s modern British cuisine and Michelin-starred The Clove Club. As for pubs and bars, Miss Nowicka suggests trying the Old Blue Last, table-football-themed Bar Kick and The Golden Heart • Residents like the independent galleries. Kate MacGarry, Studio Leigh and Victoria Miro represent a wide range of contemporary artists. For street art, Mr Stuart points to Nelly Duff and Pure Evil • Residents could do without the lack of green space—few properties come with a garden, although Shoreditch Park and the nearby St Mary’s Secret Garden are good hideaways…

Letters from London Letters to the Editor, from the Country Life archive. Our text and photographic archives date back to the magazine’s inception, in 1897. All enquiries to clpicturelibrary@ti-media.com SIR, What happy memories are brought to mind by your delightful picture of Hyde Park Corner as it used to be, with its horse-drawn carts, open-topped buses, and so on (‘Future of St George’s Hospital’, Country Life, November 11, 1976). But one thing is missing, and I have no difficulty in filling it in from memory. The road up from Grosvenor Place, in front of the Hospital, and the sharp turn into Piccadilly were on a somewhat steady upgrade and the horsepower available was frequently inadequate. However, those were the days of unimpeded free enterprise. At the bottom of the gradient would usually…
