Sav­ills (020– 3527 0400) This two-bed­room prop­erty on Wood­stock Mews is a few steps from the bou­tiques and restau­rants of Maryle­bone Vil­lage and has 922 years re­main­ing on the lease pop­u­la­tion. It’s the last Lon­don mews with horses—ross Nye Sta­bles is lo­cated at No 8 and Hyde Park Sta­bles at 63.

Mr Robin­son sin­gles out Pont Street Mews, a stone’s throw from Har­rods, and Ky­nance Mews—‘it’s just achingly pretty’—as be­ing ar­guably the smartest. He adds: ‘Ev­ery five min­utes, some­one stops and takes a pho­to­graph of Lad­broke Walk in Hol­land Park.’

The most valu­able as­set that all share is peace—birds, rather than traf­fic, will wake you. ‘The big houses bat the noise away, so the mews are si­lent,’ Mr Robin­son ex­plains. ‘You could be in a vil­lage, yet you walk around the cor­ner and you’re in the mid­dle of town. Mews are the few places in Lon­don where it’s im­pos­si­ble not to say hello to the per­son walk­ing the other way. I say, if you want a slice of the coun­try, get a mews house.’
