A Peak into the Garden

A Peak into the Garden
The Line of Beauty, by Alan Hollinghurst. Looking into Kensington Park Gardens (private). The Fedden household are keyholders.

The communal gardens were as much a part of Nick's romance of London as the house itself: big as the central park of some old European city, but private, and densely hedged on three sides with holly and shrubbery behind high Victorian railings. There were one or two places, in the surrounding streets, where someone who wasn't a keyholder could see through to a glade among the planes and tall horse chestnuts -- across which perhaps a couple would saunter or an old lady wait for her even slower dog.
