Kingsley Mews is a private cul-de-sac off Stanford Road in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Kingsley Mews contains 23 properties, used for residential purposes.
During World War II, the Aggregate Night Time Bomb Census recorded a high explosive bomb falling onto Cornwall Gardens, south of the Mews. In the past, the area was noted as having comfortable living conditions and ordinary household earnings for the time when the London Poverty Maps were first published.
The Mews is part of the ‘De Vere’ Conservation Area; originally designated in 1969 as Kensington New Town, with the other two (Kensington Court and Cornwall) areas being designated separately soon after. In 1985, the boundaries were modified and revised.
The two storey properties have rendered or painted brickwork facades with flat roof styles, surrounded by a tarmacadam road surface and intact garages.
Originally used as the coach house/ stable accommodation for the main houses on Cornwall Gardens and Eldon Road, the primary purpose of the Mews properties is now residential rather than commercial.
Before and since 2003 there have been very few planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, all relating to the retention of the roof structure on one of the properties.
Conservation Area controls apply to any new development in the Mews.
