This impressive three-bedroom live/work mews house, occupies a wonderful position on Ashby Mews, a beautiful, secluded road bordering the Brockley conservation area.
Brockley is an area of south east London renowned for its wide, leafy, tree-lined streets and its proximity to an excellent variety of green spaces including Hilly Fields and Brockley Cemetery. Ashby Mews is one of Brockley’s most interesting residential streets, home to a mixture of artists’ studios, creative businesses and private residences, all residing in former mews houses, many of which have been converted and redesigned by architects.
This particular Mews house was entirely redesigned in 2013, restoring the west-facing facade with a dramatic pitched profile. The mews elements of the house were also re-configured and a second storey added. Internally, the open-plan studio space on the ground floor is initially the most striking aspect, comprising kitchen, dining and living spaces that stretch collectively to approximately 800 sq ft. This expansive effect is accentuated through the use of steel-framed factory windows between the living area and internal storage space behind the mews doors. Engineered diamond-oak floorboards run across the majority of this floor, while large polished-concrete tiles line the garage. Black cast-iron radiators are also a recurring feature, chiming with the black steel frames of the glazed partition and frosted, glazed doors upstairs.
The zinc-clad second storey is shared between two double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, each with underfloor heating, a utility room, and a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and walk-in dressing room. There is further parking space for two cars to the side of the house.
A thriving area with a strong cultural profile, Brockley and its surroundings are now recognised as one of the most desirable parts of south-east London. It is close to a number of excellent galleries, pubs and restaurants including the South London Gallery, Hannah Barry and The Brockley Brewery, which has a tap room adjoining its brewing facility. Browns of Brockley is the local coffee shop of choice and a number of local traders and artisans can be found every Saturday at Brockley Farmers’ Market.
Brockley station is within a ten-minute walk. Trains run direct to London Bridge in approximately fifteen minutes.
