Holland Park Mews is a cobbled through road approached through its own arch off Holland Park in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Holland Park Mews contains 67 properties, used for residential purposes.
In the past, the area was noted as having comfortable living conditions and ordinary household earnings when the London Poverty Maps were first published. During World War II, a high explosive bomb fell directly onto the Mews, causing some damage to the properties within.
The Mews is part of the ‘Holland Park’ Conservation Area. Bounded in the North by Holland Park Avenue and to the south by Kensington High Street, the area was formed in 1981 by combining two smaller Conservation Areas, the new area is centred around Holland Park, a green open space and the grounds of Holland House serving Notting Hill, Hammersmith and Kensington.
The two storey properties have plain or painted brickwork facades with roofs hidden behind parapet walls, surrounded by a cobbled road surface. There are lots of balconies, roof gardens and other original features present in the Mews, including a water pump.
Numbers 1-34 and 35-67 Holland Park Mews are all Grade II Listed Buildings and are as a result, very well preserved.
Originally used as the coach house/ stable accommodation for the main houses on Holland Park the primary purpose of the Mews properties is now residential.
Before and since 2003 there have been many planning applications made for alterations to the properties in the Mews; mainly alterations to the front facades, front garage door elevation and other minor internal and external changes. Conservation Area controls apply to any new development in the Mews.
