The history of mews homes is broad-reaching, from their historic use as equestrian stables to mid-century garages for racing automobiles. Fast-forward to the 21st century, three-bedroom Napier Place puts a creative spin on this mews’ storied footprint with discerning artefacts, state-of-the-art appliances and convivial open-plan living spaces.
The social nucleus of the home is spread across the spacious first floor. An entertainer’s paradise, there’s streamlined flow between the kitchen, living and dining areas. The room is adorned with conversation-starting artwork and inviting spots to convene with loved ones. Cast your eyes upwards to the retractable skylight, affording a bright and voluminous feel. Music lovers, take note: behind the partition wall, a grand piano awaits the touch of a virtuoso. Plus, there’s a Sonos music system fitted throughout the home to soundtrack your days and nights.
Downstairs, mornings are easy in the master bedroom, with a sunny north-facing aspect. Global antiques coalesce with homely seating – a quiet spot to switch off with a page-turner. Sliding doors open to a dedicated dressing space and serene bathroom. Couples will appreciate the sleek dual vanity. For family and guests, the first and ground-floor bedroom suites balance refined tonal palettes with patterned fabrics and eclectic pieces of art. Plus, a home gym is perfect to get your endorphins running high and a laundry room keeps things organised – both located on the lower level.
