Situated to the north of London in Haringey is Avenue Mews; a through road off Princes Avenue. The Mews contains 30 properties used for commercial purposes.
The Mews is part of the Muswell Hill Conservation Area. A high explosive bomb fell onto Princes Avenue in World War II, not far from the Mews.
The two storey properties have plain brickwork facades and mansard roof styles, surrounded by a tarmacadam road surface and raised pavements. Parking is restricted and there are both intact and converted garages present.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation for the main houses on the surrounding streets and nowadays they are used for commercial purposes.
There have been a few planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews both before and since 2003, most notably the erection of a two storey terrace, the change of use of some properties to offices and the complete demolition of a building. Conservation Area controls apply to new developments in the Mews.
