As entertainment legends go, there’s still no-one to touch Judy Garland: the American singer with a giant voice and charisma to match, probably best known for her appearance as Dorothy in the original Wizard of Oz film.
So who would have imagined that such a larger-than-life, iconic performer would have lived in a London mews house? Number 4 Cadogan Lane stood in a cul-de-sac off Pont Street in Belgravia. In 1969 it was the home of Judy Garland and her musician husband, Mickey Deans, who tragically found her dead in the bathroom following an accidental overdose.
Having been left unoccupied for many years, the house was demolished in the spring to make way for a new mews development. Diehard Judy fans have mourned its passing, but it's a reminder of the way mews properties continually change and evolve - their traditional exteriors often concealing cutting edge renovations that make these houses perfect for 21st century living. That's why mews properties continue to attract celebrities, such as the singer Adele who recently bought two mews houses in Kensington.
