|Notes / History||Set on Lord Nelson's Merton Place estate, this is said to have been the home of his gardener.
Merton Place stood on the site now occupied by Doel Close on the High Path council estate.
Orginally the house stood in 1.5 acres of land but the Admiral gradually purchased additional
plots on the Wimbledon side of Merton High Street. A tunnel under the road allowed him to pass from one side of his estate to the other in complete privacy.
