Junction Mews, Paddington, London, W2
An extremely attractive cobbled mews in the heart of Paddington this mews is made up of period houses, a former hayloft and warehouse.
At the end of this quiet cul-de-sac mews the former hayloft was most recently used as a commercial design studio. This building has an air of a warehouse conversion about it, and has since made a stunning home. Rather unusually, there is an original bridge at first floor level linking this property to the house opposite. This is now a beautiful roof terrace. In addition this dwelling is the the home to what must be one of London’s oldest original basements making great use of street level windows and a light well to boot. Lurot Brand bet you can’t find a property like this ever again.
The mews also holds another historic building that was formerly known as the “Boatman’s Institute”, a meeting place for the boatmen of the Grand Union
Canal who frequented the Paddington Basin area during the Victorian era. This handsome red- bricked building has subsequently been restored to its former glory and is now an extraordinary architect-designed home.
