Your guide to London’s Mews Properties
Reporting on the changes that are occurring in London to its Mews properties, in the hope of benefitting investors, homeowners, historians, students and tourists, as well as the merely quizzical, by increasing their knowledge and understanding of these fascinating properties.
What is a Mews?
A Mews property would probably originally have consisted of a coach house with stalls for the horses and, possibly, a loose box or yard for the horses. There would be accommodation for the grooms or stable hands on the upper floor as well as room for the storage of hay and grain. Mews properties were very similar and most surrounded a close, cul de sac or plot of land in a coherent and complementary manner.
Who are we?
We are London mews specialists, and can probably be better placed than others to lay claim to the title ‘stable genius’. We provide analyses and background information covering the ‘who, what, where and how’ of Mews and records them to give a broad perspective of the changes that are occurring.
The core of the site is an alphabetical directory of authentic Mews. In addition to the directory there is a commentary giving a historical perspective of Mews in general together with analyses of subjects affecting these properties and their ownership.
