1900/0/10305 BOURDON STREET
23-JUL-02 10-38


10-38 Bourdon Street. Row of 10 stables with accommodation above, with a former horse-shoeing premises, now mews houses. 1889-1900 by Jonathan Andrews of Mount Street, builder, possibly to the designs of Horace J. Helsdon. No.28-30A by T.H. Watson, 1890-92. Red brick, red sandstone dressings, tiled roofs.
EXTERIOR: Two storeys with gabled attics. Mainly three windows wide. Row articulated in three sections: 10-20, 28-30, 32-38, comprising two groups of mews-like stables flanking the former horse-shoeing premises. Ground floors generally with central entrances flanked by double doors, with two or three registers of upper lights, and with hinges mainly inscribed 'Cottam. Compy. London'. First floor arch-headed windows with aprons and keystones; casement windows with eight-pane top lights. Projecting pilaster strips to party walls terminate in ball finials. Moulded cornice interrupted by loft doors, many retaining projecting hoists above, with flanking decorative wrought iron panels. Triangular gables terminate in small pediments carried on scrolls. Elevation to Nos. 28-30A differs from the remainder, having moulded stone surrounds to ground floor openings, triple windows with segmental pediments and aprons to the first floor, with single plate glass sash windows between, and plain triangular pediments (wholly of brick) above the parapet.
INTERIOR: not inspected.
HISTORY: This picturesque row, designed in the Queen Anne style, forms a good survival of stable buildings serving the elegant residential area of Mayfair. They were built at the very end of the period of reliance upon horses, and were subsequently adapted for motor car use. No.28-30A was built for the Metropolitan Horse shoeing Company. A Westminster City Council plaque has been erected on No.30 to the photographer Terence Donovan (1936-96), who worked there in 1978-96.
