Breaking the mews mould in D4
Built to a design brief that focused on ‘enclosure, transparency and light’, this cool and contemporary four-bed house extends to 372sq m over two levels and is family friendly despite its sharp edges
has four bedrooms, one of which is currently used as an office. The principal bedroom features a long balcony overlooking the rear garden, and a sizeable en-suite.
The basement is where the family entertainment resides – in the form of a home cinema with integrated state of the art sound system by Bowers & Wilkins and a pool table.
The rear garden is large in comparison to mews courtyards and with AstroTurf, built in seating and tall planters requires very little maintenance.
While mews properties have rarely been attractive to families, this house has an abundance of room to raise a brood – attention to detail is evident in the bespoke child stairgates in solid oak to match the treads.
Sherry FitzGerald is seeking ¤2.25 million for the property. Next door a small terraced mews is also on the market. Measuring 83sq m Bennetts is seeking ¤595,000, which equates to ¤7,168 per sq m, Number 54 with a far superior specification on a private site equates to ¤6,048 per sq m.
