Who needs a hotel? Squeeze in a home spa!

Hotel-style living is a major trend at the moment, and the residential property market has been quick to pick up on homebuyers’ desire to enjoy the same kind of pampering treatments they could expect in a five star hotel, in their own homes

In fact, rumour has it that some London property buyers are willing to pay a deposit solely on the quality of the spa suite, without viewing the living space. Developers are even bringing in high profile spa designers to create massage rooms, saunas, hair and nail salons that will attract wealthy buyers. At Lurot Brand we specialise in mews properties and while we often handle mews conversions with their own gym or spa in the basement, we appreciate that some properties would be hard pushed to accommodate a spa suite.But don’t worry. If you don’t have space, you can call in a mobile spa service such as Urban Massage, who claim they can get a professional therapist to your door within 60 minutes. Alternatively you could book your own therapy space and fill it with a hand-picked team of therapists. At therapyroomstorent.co.uk you’ll find a list of London spaces that can be hired by the hour.Meanwhile, if you are looking for a mews property – with or without a spa suite – we’d be delighted to help. Simply call us to start viewing right away.

Martin Goddard, the co-founder of the interior design company Goddard Littlefair, which is behind the big-name spas at the Corniche and Portland House developments in London, and now Belvedere Gardens, wants to bring the hotel experience to the residential market.
