Why film directors love a good mews

We were interested to come across this profile of a mews house, available as a film location

The house – promoted for its ‘bohemian feel’ – possesses the combination of period character and cutting edge interior design that has always attracted film-makers to mews properties.Many well-known films have featured mews houses as the homes of leading characters. The 1989 movie Scandal”, starring Joanne Whalley as Christine Keeler and John Hurt as John Profumo, was shot in and around Bathhurst Mews, Bayswater while Stanhope Mews South, off Gloucester Road, was home to the agent Harry Hart (played by Colin Firth) in the 2014 film Kingsman: the Secret Service.”The cult 1960s TV series the Avengers was probably first to capitalise on the edgy image of mews houses. In the early Sixties these properties had become boltholes for fashionable men-about-town: close to areas such as Mayfair and Chelsea and set in secluded back streets, they provided the perfect location for secret liaisons of all kinds. As a consequence mews properties acquired a certain raffish glamour that survives to this day.It’s easy to understand why the love affair between film directors and mews streets has lasted. Lurot Brand has a portfolio of properties that would turn most film directors green with envy, so if you’re thinking of renting or buying a mews property, call us today.
