"Located at the end of a private mews, the property faces south and takes advantage of this position with large glazed doors along the south elevation. Open or closed, these pivoting doors allow light to flood in."
Situated on a private mews close to Paddington, this one-bedroom flat is remarkably individual. Architect Geoffrey Powis has converted a former coach house into an uncompromisingly modern and flexible living space in an excellent location.
The property is split over three half levels. The kitchen and dining areas are on the lower ground, reached via ‘ship’ steps. The main living space and bedroom are on the ground floor. From the sleeping area there is access to a raised, private dressing room with shower. The mezzanine level provides further live/work space that can be made more private by rotating a series of movable screens, which in their horizontal position act as desk space. Storage is hidden but plentiful. The materials used are predominately left bare such as the concrete floors, internal steel frame and aluminium decking and screens.
Located at the end of a private mews, the property faces south and takes advantage of this position with large glazed doors along the south elevation. Open or closed, these pivoting doors allow light to flood in. Electrically operated blinds provide complete privacy.
The flat has its own entrance, and parking for one car is also available directly outside the property. Each of the properties on the mews have a shareholding in the mews itself, for which a modest service charge is paid towards the upkeep of the street.
Westbourne Terrace Mews is a prime location, with Bond Street, Oxford Street and Notting Hill Gate in close proximity. You can walk to Paddington Station, which offers Underground and National Rail services, including the Heathrow Express, in less than 5 minutes. Hyde Park is also only a short walk away.
Lease Length: Approx. 89 years
Service Charge: Approx. £600 per annum (relates to upkeep of the mews)
