Mavelstone Road is an unadopted road - the London Borough of Bromley is not responsible for the road’s maintenance. As a result, Mavelstone Road has retained an high proportion of its original large early 20th century residences. Its character has led it to be designated a Conservation Area by the borough.
’Stotfold’, built in 1908-9, is a grade II listed building and is also on the statutory list of buildings of architectural or historic interest.
Both Mavelstone Close
and Mount Close
were developed in the middle 1950s off of Mavelstone Road. Park Farm Road
, which adjoins Mavelstone Road, is also unadopted and also has some fine examples of Arts and Crafts residential architecture.
Built around 1907 for John Roe Hickman of the toolmaking firm of Buck and Hickman, Stotfold, this huge baronial style house, remained a family home until its conversion to flats in the mid fifties.
