Reston Place is a part-cobbled through road off Hyde Park Gate in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea. Reston Place contains 3 properties, used for residential purposes (and also the Zimbabwe Embassy).
The Mews was noted as having very comfortable living conditions with some of the wealthiest household earnings for the time when the London Poverty Maps were first published.
The Mews is part of Kensington’s ‘Queen’s Gate’ Conservation Area. Containing grand terraces, garden squares and intimate Mews, the Conservation Area was designated in 1969. It is bounded in the north and east sides by Westminster and incorporates London’s primary Museums.
The two storey properties have rendered or painted brickwork facades and pitched roof styles surrounded by a cobbled and tarmacadam road surface.
Originally the stable/ coach house accommodation for the main houses on the surrounding streets, the primary purpose of the Mews properties is now residential.
There are very few records of planning applications being made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being a roof extension. Conservation Area controls apply to any new development in the Mews.
