Property Description

Eaton Row is a partly cobbled cul-de-sac approached through an entrance under a building on Hobart Place in Westminster. There are 18 properties in the Mews, used for residential purposes.

 

A high explosive bomb fell onto Lower Belgrave Street, just south of the Mews in World War II. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was determined as being fairly comfortable and having households with good ordinary earnings.

 

Eaton Row is part of Westminster City Council’s Belgravia Conservation Area. First designated in 1968, it was laid out as a fashionable residential area to the west of Buckingham Palace. There is a high degree of townscape uniformity and a formal layout based on a grid pattern. The area is predominantly residential with some shops on the edges. There are also a significant number of embassies, diplomatic buildings and institutional headquarters.

 

The two and three storey properties are a mixture of plain and painted brickwork and vary between mansard and parapet roof styles. There are intact garages present, surrounded by a cobbled (and tarmacadam in places) road surface. Some redevelopment has taken place on one side of the Mews.

 

Everchanging Nature

 

The original purpose of Eaton Row was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation to the main houses on Lower Belgrave Street. Now, it is predominantly used for residential purposes.

 

Many planning applications have been made since 2003, most notably; basement excavations and changes to the fenestration. Conservation Area controls now apply to new development in the Mews.
