Rossetti Mews, off Ordance Hill is a gated cul-de-sac in Upper Westminster, approached through an entrance under a building. There are 3 properties in the Mews, 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.
When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was determined as having middle class living conditions.
Rossetti Mews is part of Westminster Council’s St John’s Wood Conservation Area, one of Westminster’s biggest Conservation Areas located in the northern extremity of the City. Designated in 1968, St John’s Wood has an overall low density townscape with wide tree-lined streets. Importance is placed on generous gardens, trees and greenery, with smaller pockets of terraced housing and mansion blocks.
The two storey properties have mansard roofs and a plain brickwork facade surrounded by a paved road surface. No access is grated to the general public.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation to the main houses in Ordance Hill. Now, it is used for residential purposes.
Conservation Area controls now apply to new development in the Mews.
