Traditional London mews make unique homes
When you’re choosing a home from half a world away, it’s even more important to get the details right. Here are some points to consider when deciding where to live
1. Does the area have good transport links?
2. Is it near an excellent school?
3. Does it feel safe?
4. Is it close to shops, leisure facilities and restaurants?
5. Are there open, green spaces nearby?
If you want to live in a sophisticated urban area with great transport links, close to good schools and green, open spaces, then your search should be focused on north and west London.
Properties in Chelsea, Holland Park, Hyde Park, Notting Hill, Paddington, Regent’s Park and South Kensington may come with a prime London price tag but you’ll be rewarded by proximity to everything you need for a fulfilling family life. However, you may feel that the majestic white stucco townhouses, solid brick mansion blocks and contemporary low-rise developments in these sought-after areas don’t fit your idea of a cosy, family home.
Here’s where a London property expert can help, by shining a light on some of the capital’s hidden gems. Go on to explore the roads and side streets behind these magnificent buildings and you’ll discover the perfect solution – a traditional mews house for sale.
These houses were originally built in the 18th and 19th centuries as accommodation for servants, which is why they are usually found tucked away behind grander mansions in some of London’s most exclusive areas. Many traditional mews properties, however, have now been restored to provide everything required for an enjoyable, 21st century lifestyle.
A mews is a safe, virtually traffic-free environment which is perfect for families. Living in a pretty, quintessentially British mews property such as Denbigh Close in Notting Hill, you’ll be part of a small neighbourhood community and within walking distance of beautiful parks, independent shops, great restaurants, bars and excellent schools.
