Ebury Mews East is a cobbled cul-de-sac off Eccleston Street in Westminster. There are only 8 properties in the Mews, used for residential purposes and it runs directly in line with Ebury Mews, another original/ surviving Mews.
A high explosive bomb fell onto Eccleston Street, just to the west 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.
Ebury Mews East 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 display a variety of mansard and parapet roof styles. The garages present are intact and are surrounded by a cobbled road surface.
The original purpose of Ebury Mews East was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation to the main houses on Ebury Street. Now, it is predominantly used for residential purposes.
A few planning applications for alterations affecting the Mews have been made since 2003, mainly to the main houses in the surrounding streets rather than the Mews properties themselves. Conservation Area controls now apply to new development in the Mews.
