Property Description

Situated within Inner London in the Borough of Camden, is Gower Mews; a cul-de-sac off Gower Street. The Mews contains 40 properties used for residential purposes.

 

The Mews is part of the Bloomsbury Conservation Area. Situated in central London, covering approximately 160 hectares from High Holborn to Euston Road and King’s Cross Road to Tottenham Court Road, the area was designated in 1968. Due to the size of the Conservation Area, there is no one defining character but rather a collection of different sub-areas and their own characteristics. Most of the historic characteristics of the area are now confined to the Mews or privately maintained areas.

 

A high explosive bomb fell onto Store Street right next to the Mews, presumably causing significant damage to the properties in World War II and when the London Poverty Maps were first published, the area was deemed to have comfortable living conditions.

 

Dating from the 19th Century, the three storey properties have plain brickwork facades with a mixture of mansard and parapet roof styles, surrounded by a tarmacadam road surface.

 

Everchanging Nature

 

The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation for the main houses on Gower Street and nowadays they are predominantly used for residential purposes.

 

Before and since 2003 there have been many planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being; the demolition of some properties and alterations to the fenestration. Conservation Area controls apply to any new development in the Mews.
