Caroline Place Mews is a private and cobbled cul-de-sac off Orme Lane in Westminster. The Mews is predominantly oriented in a south-north direction and is joined onto Orme Court Mews, another original/ surviving Mews. Caroline Place Mews contains 8 properties.
In World War II, a high explosive bomb fell onto Lombardy Place, just off Caroline Place nearby. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was described as being comfortable with normal household earnings.
Caroline Place Mews is part of the Church Commissioners’ Hyde Park Estate, and Westminster City Council’s Bayswater Conservation Area, located to the North of Hyde Park.
The Mews has two storey, plain brickwork properties with pitched and ridged roofs and a cobbled road surface. Parking is restricted.
Originally the stable accommodation for the properties in Caroline Place, the Mews is now used exclusively for residential purposes. There have been a few planning applications made before and since 2003, most notably basement excavations and the use of the original garage areas as additional residential dwelling space. Conservation Area controls now apply to any new development in the Mews.
