London living doesn’t get better than in a mews, complete with all the charm and privacy they provide. These unique homes, with their quiet settings and individual entrances, are the most coveted London properties on the market. This means they go fast when they do come up for sale. That’s why we jumped when we saw this fabulous three bedroom mews house very quietly situated at the end of a pretty cobblestoned mews in South Kensington. This remarkable two-level mews house is on the market for the asking price of £3.6 million. Let’s take a look at what makes this house such a rare gem!
There are several unusual and very special features: most mews houses do not have gardens (a few have a roof terrace), but this one has a nice little patio off the living room. It’s a wonderful feature to be able to enjoy your own private green space outdoors right in the heart of London.
This mews house also has a spacious feel, especially since it is much wider than normal and is over 1,800 square feet – over just 2 floors. The room sizes and ceiling heights are excellent for a small house. The ground level features a large living room opening to the patio, a dining area, modern kitchen and an adjacent dining area off the kitchen. Cooks will enjoy the kitchen, which is finely appointed with slate grey and white cupboards and a warm wood countertop. The large window fills the room with beautiful light.
A staircase leads to the upper level where you’ll find two large bedrooms, one smaller bedroom/study, and two full bathrooms. The house was refurbished a few years ago to a high standard, and could just use a little painting, as the bedrooms are only for lilac lovers.
Large windows in the bedrooms fill the rooms with plenty of light, which is such an important feature when searching for property in London. The two large bedrooms in this home really show off all the space available, which is a great asset for a mews.
The location couldn’t be better! It’s only a short walk to the South Kensington and Gloucester Road Tube stations as well as the Natural History, Science, and Victoria & Albert museums. There are lots of shops and restaurants all within a 5-10 minute walk.
South Kensington is one of London’s most charming areas and it continues to attract high-end buyers thanks to its central location, historic atmosphere, and living conveniences like excellent shopping and transportation options.
