Old age home
In addition to running St Peter's Home in Mortimer Road, the Sisterhood of the Community of St Peter established St Peter's Harbour for Aged Women.
The Harbour opened sometime around 1902. It provided a permanent home for women aged over 60 years.
In 1917 the weekly charge ranged from 15 shillings (75p) to two guineas (£2.10).
In 1923 the Harbour moved to Maybury Hill in Woking. It was renamed The Smiles Home for Invalid Ladies.
Present status (November 2019)
In 2010 the building was listed as the Science and Technology section of the Chinese Embassy. Its present use is unknown.
The 4-storey detached villa is located on the southeast side of Greville Place, on the southwest corner with Greville Road.
The building was slightly damaged during the Blitz in WW2 (1939-1945) when a High Explosive bomb exploded in the road outside. Its neighbour - No. 8 - was destroyed.
