Property Description

Montagu Row is a cobbled through road approached through and entrance under a building on Crawford Street and leading to Dorset Street in Westminster, in line with Beverston Mews, a redeveloped Mews street. There are 4 properties in Montagu Row, used for residential purposes. It is located on the site of an original Mews but has been re-developed to a degree that it no longer contains any surviving Mews properties.

 

Between October 1940 and June 1941, a high explosive bomb is recorded falling onto York Street, next to the nearby Beverston Mews. The area was noted as being comfortable with a middle-class standard of living when the London Poverty Maps were first published.

 

Montagu Row is a part of Westminster City Council’s Portman Estate Conservation Area. Situated in the boundaries of Marylebone, which was once covered with forest and marshland, the estate originally comprised about 270 acres and now contains a variety of buildings from different centuries, from many examples of Mews to the grand terraces of Bryanston Square and Montagu Square.

 

The Mews has four storey buildings with mansard roof styles and a plain brickwork facade. The buildings are surrounded by a cobbled road surface and parking is restricted.

 

Everchanging Nature

 

The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation to the main houses on Montagu Mansions and Baker Street but today the properties are mainly used residentially.

 

A few planning applications have been made since 2003 for alterations to properties, mainly roof extensions. Conservation Area controls now apply to new development in the Mews. Some of the properties were redeveloped in 1990, and others in 2002.
