The history of mews homes is eclectic. From their original use as equestrian stables and carriage houses, to mid-century garages for racing automobiles, mews homes now define discreet and luxurious city living. Munro mews – part of the Portobello Square development – is no exception. The welcoming character of the street is continued the moment you step inside.
The layout has been creatively inverted, so the social heart lies on the top floor. Bold artwork draws you upstairs to the open-plan kitchen, living and dining room. At once uplifting and soothing, it’s a light-flooded space awaiting the conversations of friends and family. A showpiece of greyscale tones and smooth surfaces, the kitchen is set for culinary creativity. Name a better place for a morning coffee or evening sundowner than the decked balcony outside? From here, spot Ernő Goldfinger’s Trellick Tower – an iconic Brutalist stamp on west London’s architectural map.
Downstairs, the master bedroom is adorned with baroque wallpaper in a calming aquamarine hue, with a television for late-night movie marathons. There's a large wardrobe to store vintage treasures found along Golborne Road. A cosy guest bedroom is nestled on the ground floor – the striking feature wall and pop art are a testament to the home’s considered design. Two bathrooms are showpieces of sleek greyscale marble; choose between an invigorating shower or long soak in the bath. Also on the ground floor, a secluded terrace with bamboo plants, garden lighting and alfresco seating.
