Property Description

There are 11 properties in the Mews, used for residential purposes and also including Grosvenor Studios.

Grosvenor-Cottages

A high explosive bomb fell nearby onto Eaton Terrace in World War II. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was determined as having a mixture of fairly comfortable households with good ordinary earnings to poorer living conditions in comparison.

 

The Mews is part of the ‘Sloane Square’ Conservation Area; Designated in 1985, having been redeveloped towards the end of the 19th Century, it contains a high density of red brick buildings and is bounded by the Royal Hospital and Hans Town Conservation Areas. It contains a number of Listed Buildings including the Holy Trinity Church.

 

The two storey properties are a mixture of painted and rendered brickwork and have parapet, pitched and flat roof styles. There are intact garages present, surrounded by a cobbled road surface and partial raised pavements.

 

Everchanging Nature

 

The original purpose of Grosvenor Cottages was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation to the main houses on Eaton Terrace and Cliveden Place. Now, it is predominantly used for residential purposes.

 

A few planning applications have been made before and since 2003, most notably the addition of a number of conservatories. Conservation Area controls now apply to new development in the Mews.
