TQ2804NE THIRD AVENUE
579-1/17/121 (East side)
(Consecutive)
2-9 King's Mews

GV II

Includes: No.35 THIRD AVENUE.
Mews, now dwellings over garages. c1883, altered early C20.
Yellow stock bricks, brick quoins and moulded brick and stone
dressings, slate and bitumen covered hipped slate roofs with
overhanging eaves carried on bracket cornices, tall brick
stacks with moulded caps rising from eaves on facade, flanking
first floor window to each block. U-plan, entrance to yard
closed by archway. (No.1 King's Mews is known as No.35 Third
Avenue.)
The entrance blocks were originally identical and the southern
block is the least altered; 2 storeys, 3 bays, central first
floor window, renewed with mid C20 metal oriel below gable
top, ground floor 3-bay segmental headed blind arcade with
keystone and continuous entablature; northern range with
original first floor window and inserted early C20 many paned
sash windows in northern 2 bays, half-glazed door adjoining.
Blocks linked by 2-storey scroll-headed archway, moulded
cornice and string, decorative brick panels at first floor
level, quoins and moulded entablature to round arched opening,
inserted C20 doorway right. Some original sash windows and
doors survive in the mews.
This is the only mews block with an archway entrance and it
seems unlikely that any of the other mews were originally
built with such an imposing entranceway.
