Shillibeer Place is a part-cobbled cul-de-sac, off York Street in Westminster. The Mews contains 11 commercial properties and is orientated in a south-east to north-west direction. 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 comfortable living conditions and ordinary household salaries for the time.
Shillibeer Place is a part of Westminster City Council’s Portman Estate Conservation Area. Situated in the boundaries of Marylebone, which was once covered with forest and marshland, the estate originally comprised about 270 acres and now contains a variety of buildings from different centuries, from many examples of Mews to the grand terraces of Bryanston Square and Montagu Square.
The painted and rendered brickwork, three storey buildings have mansard roofs and no garages. The road surface is cobbled under tarmacadam.
The original purpose of the Mews was to provide stable/ coach house accommodation for the larger, main houses in Harcourt Street and nowadays the Mews is still used commercially. A few planning applications have been made since 2003 for minor alterations to the exterior and fenestration. Conservation Area controls apply to any new development in the Mews.
