Garden Mews is a private, part-cobbled cul-de-sac off Linden Gardens in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea, similar in size and location to Linden Mews, another original/ surviving Mews. It contains 4 properties used for residential purposes.
In World War II, a high explosive bomb fell onto Linden Gardens, just outside of the Mews and presumably causing some damage to the properties. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the Mews was noted as being one of the wealthiest households in the area.
The Mews is part of Kensington’s ‘Pembridge’ Conservation Area. One of the earliest designations in 1969, the area has since been developed in the 19th Century and contains a wide variety of different building types; from Mews to terraces and semi-detached/ detached villas.
The two and three storey properties have pitched roof styles and plain or painted brickwork facades. Parking is restricted along the cobbled and paved road surface and there are both intact and converted garages present. Some of the Mews properties have balconies.
Originally the stable house accommodation for the main houses on Linden Gardens, the primary purpose of the Mews properties is now residential.
Before and since 2003 there are no records of any planning applications being made for alterations to the properties within the Mews. Conservation Area controls apply to any new development in the Mews.
