The thick fog is swirling, the night is bitter and the sound of horse’s hooves on cobbles echoes through the deserted streets. For over three hundred years the back street stable mews buildings, at the rear of substantial family homes, housed servants, horses and coaches – probably not the most pleasant of areas!
Jump to the present day and now they are some of the coolest pads in the capital. Tucked away, these unique buildings ooze charm and history, and they have the potential to be developed into incredibly desirable, high-end homes.
One leading developer, Landmass, whose last two major Mews projects in Belgravia have sold for record breaking prices, demonstrate best how to reconfigure a Mews house. Through the creative introduction of natural light and innovative space planning, a mews can be transformed into a deceiving façade.
Cue 48 Belgravia Mews North – 100% wow!
This Grade II listed property has been reconfigured to create a contemporary three bedroom home benefitting from a stunning south facing roof terrace and off-street parking.
The home is a haven of light and space, with extraordinary 3.2 metre ceiling heights in the basement, and a glass ceiling and glass walls from the stairwell. It is a design masterpiece.
Recognising that basements often add value, Landmass also have also installed a retractable ceiling over the ground floor reception along with a glass encased stairwell to a stunning roof terrace.
No need to ‘mews’ over this property – it is quite simply, stunning! And I can definitely see myself sipping a glass of bubbly on that amazing terrace, what about you?

With 15 years of experience and over 40 of their own projects bought and sold, Landmass are leading the way for developing Mews houses into some of the most sought after properties in Prime Central London.
