Architect: Ibañez Kim
This characterful and historic three-bedroom mews house in central London, and close to Regent’s Park, is situated around an attractive communal courtyard within this converted 1912 industrial building which was once the Vinot-Deguingand car company coachworks.
Approached through a gated arch and into a pretty courtyard, the house has a favourable corner position in this peaceful pocket of NW1. Entry is into the hall with a cloakroom and onto a sizeable kitchen with oak cupboards, granite worktops and a large De Dietrich gas hob. The kitchen flows into the beautifully proportioned reception and dining room, which have wonderful high ceilings and four large arched sash windows that flood the room with light.
On the first floor is a large studio space / bedroom, which has windows to the front and back, similarly high ceilings and bespoke built-in artist’s desk and storage. There is a guest shower room equipped with an additional oversized artist sink. The beautifully bright master bedroom has three large sash windows and an en-suite bathroom, with glass Bisazza mosaic tiles, a large bath, separate shower and fitted oak cupboards.
The second floor is a converted loft space with two large skylights letting in lots of light and giving a view of the church next door. There is a guest basin in the bedroom and beneath is a hidden storage space. A partly glass floor looks down onto the studio below. There is a large amount of built-in storage within the eaves.
An impressive architect-designed staircase in finger-jointed American black walnut flows up through the house connecting all three levels of flexible space. The interior space was redesigned by architects Ibañez Kim in 2006.
Below the development is a car park with allocated space that can be accessed from the street via a car lift.
The green space of Regent’s Park is on the doorstep, and the shops, bars and restaurants at both Marylebone High Street and Camden Town are short walks away.
The house is close to Great Portland Street and Regent’s Park stations for access to the London Underground and Euston station is a ten-minute walk away for mainline trains. The house is also within easy reach of the stations at King’s Cross St. Pancras for international trains and further mainline trains. The house is conveniently placed for access to all of central London.
