Morton Mews is a gated, cobbled cul-de-sac approached through its own arch on Earlscourt Gardens in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Morton Mews contains 13 properties, used for residential purposes.
In the past, the area was noted as having a mixture of comfortable living conditions and lower than average household earnings when the London Poverty Maps were first published.
The Mews is part of the ‘Courtfield’ Conservation Area; first designated in 1971 as Collingham Gardens and was subsequently expanded up to 1985. It is an attractive residential enclave surrounded by many major roads, providing a firm boundary to the area meaning further expansion is unlikely. The formal terraces, gardens and wide roads provide an elegant character to the area.
The two storey properties have rendered or brickwork facades with mansard roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled road surface.
Originally used as the coach house/ stable accommodation for the main houses on the surrounding streets, the primary purpose of the Mews properties is now residential.
Before and since 2003 there have been a few planning applications made for alterations to the properties in the Mews, most notably the excavation of basements for additional residential living space. Conservation Area controls apply to any new development in the Mews.
