We are starting the week off with a lovely mix of the old and the new. Or this 1960s Renton Welch-designed modernist mews house in London NW1 if you prefer.
According to the agent, this was the work of the Renton Welch partnership around 1969, one of two similar properties found on a ‘cobbled mews’ not far from Camden Town.
We are big fans of the mews house in its traditional form. An updated ‘60s number? Perhaps even more so.
To us, this looks like a house that has generally kept its shape from the 1960s, as well as some of its key features, such as the double height ceiling space, the exposed brick and the wood panelling. It looks like the fittings are something of a tribute to the era too. But the house isn’t stuck in that era. Far from it.
The place has been reworked, possibly lifted, by some modern-era additions. The staircase obviously jumps out at us, the kitchen is definitely a recent fit and we suspect the glazing has recently been reworked.
But it all just fits together. That’s the great thing about this place. Modern, but with a heavy nod back to its original era.
As for space, this place is arranged over two main levels, the large open-plan reception / kitchen on the first floor with plenty of light from the large south-west facing windows, plus a ‘versatile’ mezzanine area, two further bedrooms and two bathrooms occupying the ground floor.
To the rear of the house is a south-facing patio garden. Not huge, but enough to enjoy when the sun finally shines.
Just on the market and if you like the look of the place, the asking price is £1,400,000.
