Property Description

Situated within Inner London in the Borough of Camden is Brownlow Mews; a cobbled through road approached through an entrance under a building on Guilford Street. The Mews contains 42 properties used for residential and commercial purposes.

 

The Mews is part of the Bloomsbury Conservation Area. Situated in central London and covering approximately 160 hectares from High Holborn to Euston Road and King’s Cross Road to Tottenham Court Road, the area was designated in 1968. Due to the size of the Conservation Area, there is no one-defining character but rather a collection of different sub-areas and their own characteristics. Most of the historic characteristics of the area are now confined to the Mews or privately maintained areas.

 

A high explosive bomb fell onto Roger Street, right next to the Mews, presumably causing significant damage to the properties in World War II and when the London Poverty Maps were first published, the area was deemed to have a mixture of comfortable and poorer living conditions.

 

The one, two, three and four storey properties have rendered and painted brickwork facades with a mixture of mansard and pitched roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled road surface with raised pavements. There are also seats, benches and plants to be seen in the Mews, along with Winches and Metal Bressumers. The two bollards with Spur Stones flanking the entrance to Brownlow Mews are Grade II Listed.

 

Everchanging Nature

 

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 predominantly used for residential purposes, with some commercial activity also taking place.

 

Before and since 2003 there have been many planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being; the change of use of some properties to residential and alterations to the fenestration. Conservation Area controls apply to any new development in the Mews.
