Rutland Mews West is a gated, cobbled cul-de-sac approached through its own arch on Ennismore Street in Westminster, near to Rutland Mews East, opposite Rutland Mews South, another original/ surviving Mews. There are 4 properties in the Mews, used for residential purposes.
A high explosive bomb fell onto Ennismore 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.
The two storey properties have a mixture of mansard, parapet and flat roof styles and painted brickwork or rendered facades, surrounded by a cobbled road surface.
There are no records of planning applications being been made prior to and since 2003. Conservation area controls now apply to new development in the Mews.
