Situated within Inner London in the Borough of Camden, is Albert Terrace Mews; a part-cobbled through road off Regents Park Road. The Mews contains 16 properties used for residential purposes.
The Mews is part of the Primrose Hill Conservation Area; Designated in October 1971 and extended in 1985, the area is made up of a series of Victorian Terraces, primarily residential in character and contains Primrose Hill, which provides open space in contrast to the many local industries, shopping centers and schools.
When the London Poverty Maps were first published, the area was deemed to have comfortable living conditions with ordinary household earnings for the time.
The two storey properties have rendered and painted brickwork facades and a mixture of different roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled and tarmacadam road surface with both intact and converted garages and restricted parking. The Mews properties display bressumers and original stable doors, with partial-raised pavements along the road.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation for the main houses on the surrounding streets but nowadays they are predominantly used for residential purposes.
Before and since 2003 there have been a large number of planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, including; single storey extensions and basement excavations. Conservation Area controls apply to any development in the Mews.
