July 2016 – Eton Garages
What a month July has been so far! With the referendum and a new Prime Minister already… it’s hard to steer clear from politics when there is this much going on. So we think it’s the right time to honour David Cameron in true Etonian Style.
Our Mews of the Month for July is Eton Garages.
Situated within Inner London in the Borough of Camden, is Eton Garages; a cobbled through road off Lambolle Place and in line with part of Lancaster Stables, also containing original/ surviving Mews properties. The Mews contains 25 properties used for residential and commercial purposes.
The large villas built around 1850 had attic and basement space for servants and were aimed at wealthy professionals, the intention being to attract the ‘carriage classes’ to the north of London rather than areas such as Bayswater and Kensington. Unlike other areas built at the same time or slightly earlier there was no apparent demand for extensive stabling associated with each street. The main area of mews development within the area was constructed on a triangular four acre field to the north of Belsize Lane.
