Explore four fabulous Hyde Park mews streets
The area lying north of Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park is one of the most cosmopolitan parts of London. Tucked in behind its attractive roads and leafy garden squares, you’ll find a hidden world of traditional mews streets.
As you explore these delightful enclaves, you may even hear the gentle clip-clop of horses’ hooves as local riders head out to the park.
Albion Mews: As good (and green) as it gets
According to respected writer Candida Lycett Green, our chairman Antoine Lurot’s cousin, Albion Mews is “as good as it gets” (high praise indeed, from the author of ‘The Perfect House’). Looking for an Albion mews for sale? It helps if you’re green-fingered. Albion Mews won Lurot Brand’s Mews in Bloom prize for two years running, when it was described by competition judge Ms Lycett Green as “a startlingly lush secret oasis full of sumptuous greenery“.
Scoop of the year: A new home in Lancaster Mews
If you’re a fan of Woody Allen movies this mews may seem familiar: the Mitre pub on the corner was a location for his 2006 film ‘Scoop’, starring Hugh Jackman and Scarlett Johansson. With excellent transport links, this picture-perfect traditional mews is located close to Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park. Whether you’re looking for a Lancaster mews for sale or rent, finding a home here can only be good news.
A lullaby in Leinster Mews
Entering Leister Mews through its Grade II listed archway is as soothing as a lullaby. It’s a safe, enclosed space that feels a world away from the busy London streets that surround it. A stone’s throw from Kensington Gardens and equidistant from three tube stations, Leinster Mews is a haven of peace and quiet. Its most famous resident was TV legend Dame Thora HIrd, best known for her appearances in Last of the Summer Wine. Make an appointment to view a Leinster Mews for sale or rent and feel your tension slip away.
A promise of Provence in Hyde Park Garden Mews
Cobbles, brightly-painted houses and colourful pot plants against an uninterrupted blue sky: Baux-de-Provence or Bayswater? Sometimes it’s hard to tell. This is one of the few mews streets in London that isn’t overlooked by higher buildings, so when you view a Hyde Park Garden Mews for sale or rent, it’s easy to forget that you’re standing at the centre of a great city.
A glimpse of riders clip-clopping their way across the cobbles on their way to Hyde Park, a creeper-clad brick archway or the glow of a Victorian street lamp may make you feel that you’ve travelled back in time. But there’s a different story inside the lovely mews houses you’ll find in these streets. Most properties have been refurbished with sleek, contemporary interiors, making them perfect for 21st century living. If you’ve fallen in love with this area, why not contact us at Lurot Brand?
