Property Description

Rutland Gate Mews is a part-cobbled cul-de-sac off Rutland Gate in Westminster. There are just 5 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.


A high explosive bomb fell directly onto Rutland Gardens, not far from the Mews in World War II. When the London Poverty Maps were published, the area was determined as being fairly comfortable with ordinary household earnings for the time.


Rutland Gate Mews is part of Westminster City Council’s Knightsbridge Conservation Area; designated in 1968, the area relates strongly to Queen’s Gate Conservation Area in Kensington and Chelsea and contains large-scale cultural and educational institutions such as the Royal Albert Hall. The western half of the area is dominated by a late Victorian cultural complex and mansion blocks whilst the east has residential areas of leafy squares and intimate terraces.


There are also several mews within the conservation area, particularly to the east and south. These are characterised by their intimate scale and are generally two storeys in height and relate to the plot width of the principal building with which they are associated.


The three and five storey properties have a mixture of mansard and pitched roof styles and plain brickwork facades, surrounded by a cobbled and tarmacadam road surface.


Everchanging Nature


In 1988-9, many of the properties were completely demolished and rebuilt. A few planning applications have been made prior to and since 2003; mainly changes to the fenestration. Conservation Area controls now apply to new development in the Mews.
