Among the many manifesto pledges in circulation as the General Election draws closer are references to the UK's property market, with politicians citing how they will improve house building and home ownership prospects.

Something that did catch our eye here at Lurot Brand - an estate agency specialising in the sale and let of mews properties in Central London - is a pledge from Theresa May to build more new homes.

While not an unusual plan, the 12-point property manifesto issued by the Conservatives outlined the actual type of properties they'd like to see more of and there was a specific mention of mews houses.

Here at Lurot Brand we are experts in the sale and let of mews properties and can testify that there is a healthy appetite for this distinctive style of property. Although many of the homes we represent are period and even listed, the more modern mews homes that are placed with us are always snapped up.

We are keen to see creative plans for mews houses of the future and look forward to more of this house type potentially being built in London.
