the Baxter brothers, creators of the trendy Kip Hotel in Hackney, where monochrome minimalism reigns.
At Fonthill Mews, white-walled interiors have a more textural feel, featuring wide-plank oak floors, London Underground-like glazed brick tiles, exposed steel beams, vaulted ceilings, traditional radiators and Shaker-style kitchens with marble worktops and range cookers. Crisp, powder-coated doors slide open to decked patios.
Once through the entrance gates, winding communal gardens punctuated with footlights and raised lamps signal the way to the homes. Rents from £2,200 per month. Call Davies & Davies on 020 7272 0986.
