Farnell Mews is a part-cobbled cul-de-sac off Earlscourt Square in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Farnell Mews contains 10 properties, used for residential purposes.
In the past, the area was noted as having a mixture of comfortable living conditions and normal household earnings with poorer residences for the time when the London Poverty Maps were first published. The Mews is part of the ‘Earl’s Court Square’ Conservation Area.
The two storey properties have plain or painted brickwork facades with pitched roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled and tarmacadam road surface. There are lots of plants and seats present in the Mews, in addition to original bollards and raised party walls.
Originally used as the coach house/ stable accommodation for the main houses on Earl’s Court Square, the primary purpose of the Mews properties is now residential.
Before and since 2003 there have been a few planning applications made for alterations to the properties in the Mews, mainly regarding; new fenestration on some of the properties and the excavation of a basement for additional residential living space. Conservation Area controls apply to any new development in the Mews.
