5 compelling reasons to choose a (Lurot Brand) mews

In the ever-changing world of London property there’s one type of dwelling that has consistently met or exceeded people’s expectations: the mews house.

Almost 50 years ago, Lurot Brand’s founder, Antoine Lurot spotted the potential for central London mews streets to become addresses of choice for on-the-go Londoners and since that time Lurot Brand has sold, let and managed more mews houses than any other estate agent. Here are five reasons why you should choose a Lurot Brand mews:

1. Stunning contemporary living

In the 1960s mews houses in London (once humble homes for servants who worked in neighbouring grand mansions) were often used as commercial garages, lock ups and light industrial units. With the help of Lurot Brand’s pioneering specialist team, many of these neglected properties were renovated to become desirable contemporary homes. That’s why we’re perfectly placed to advise on the development of your mews property. Find out more about the Lurot Brand history.

2. A prestigious name with great rewards

According to Zoopla, a street name with the word ‘mews’ can add substantially to a property’s value. In a 2010 survey, Zoopla found the most exclusive residential suffixes were ‘mews’ and ‘lane’, outpricing ‘square’, ‘grove’ and ‘park’. At Lurot Brand we know which London mews streets command the best prices and can advise you on achieving the best sale price for your mews house.

3. The perfect central London location

Many of the houses we offer for sale or rent are in highly desirable areas such as Knightsbridge and the Hyde Park Estate, close to parks, transport links and great cultural destinations, so take a look at our fabulous rental and sales portfolios to choose your next exclusive home.

London property prices have recently begun to soften and, according to the website PropertyWire, over the year to May 2018, central London prices in the £2 million to £5 million bracket have fallen by 2%, in the £5 million to £10 million sector they are down by 0.3% and for homes priced over £10 million the reduction is 0.5%, making this a great time to invest.
