Situated within Inner London in the Borough of Camden, is Rosslyn Mews; a cobbled pedestrian through road approached through an entrance under a building on Rosslyn Road and almost parallel to Old Brewery Mews, also containing redeveloped Mews properties. The Mews contains 7 properties used for residential and commercial 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.
The Mews is part of the Hampstead conservation area; designated on 29th January 1968, the area contains a large number of listed buildings with archeological interest and is situated in North London, from Finchley Road to Highgate. It also demonstrates aspects of an 18th Century Village, adjacent to streets created in the Victorian Era as well as many 20th Century developments.
When the London Poverty Maps were first published, the area was deemed to have very comfortable living conditions with some of the highest household incomes for the time.
The two and three storey properties have rendered and painted brickwork facades with a mixture of different roof styles, surrounded by a cobbled road surface. The Mews contains Blackburn House, built in 1989 by Chassay Wright & Wilson.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation for the main houses on the surrounding streets and nowadays they are predominantly used for residential purposes, with some commercial activity also taking place.
Before and since 2003 there have been many planning applications made for alterations to the properties within the Mews, the most notable being; a rear extension and the use of the ground floor of some properties as offices. The office building in the Mews was developed in the 1980s. Conservation Area controls apply to any new development in the Mews.
