If living in a traffic-free area in prime Central London appeals, we recommend looking to buy or rent a mews house. Once the home of coaches, horses and racing cars, these beautifully converted properties, with their Victorian or Georgian facades, line narrow cobbled lanes, along which vehicles now seldom pass.
These period mews homes offer a unique lifestyle - like that of a friendly country village - with the advantage of being located in premium London locations. You'll also enjoy the benefits of excellent transport links and amenities, such as schools, clinics and supermarkets close by.
"the latter-day charm of these places, which were designed in effect for the parking of coaches and horses, rests largely in their residential calm and relative freedom from vehicles."
