Property Description

Halkin Mews is a part-cobbled cul-de-sac off Motcomb Street in Westminster. There are 7 properties in the Mews, used for residential purposes. It is situated opposite Kinnerton Street, also containing original/ surviving Mews properties.


A high explosive bomb fell directly onto the Mews in World War II, meaning the properties within had to be rebuilt as a result of the damage that occurred. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was determined as being Middle Class and fairly well off in comparison to the standard household salaries at the time.


Halkin Mews 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 Mews has two and three storey, plain brickwork buildings with roofs hidden behind parapet walls. The garages remain intact and are surrounded by a cobbled and tarmacadam road surface.

Everchanging Nature


The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation to the main houses on West Halkin Street. Now, it is predominantly used for residential purposes.


A few planning applications have been made before and since 2003 mainly regarding changes to the fenestration. Conservation Area controls now apply to new development in the Mews.
