London’s property market is notoriously difficult to be part of but it’s one of the most exciting in the world. While all cities have their own architectural style, few are as diverse as London’s, from renovated modern loft spaces to Victorian homes that have remained almost untouched. With such a range of properties, it’s both extremely difficult and extremely fun to find which suits you the most. Our weekly series of the best London properties on sale right now continues with Bentinck Mews.
Bentinck Mews, London W1
Adaptable modern living and refined materiality
£3,250,000 via Modern House
Beginning with the location, this 3-bedroom property is nestled down a cosy cobbled no-through road found just off Marylebone Lane. This means it’s only minutes away from transport connections that will take you to central London in less than 30 minutes. The cosy plot is deceptively large inside, and the interior space has been used masterfully. The home is ideal for modern living thanks to forward-thinking design and use of space.
Walking through the door, you’re greeted by a rough-sawn oak staircase with recessed handrail and shadow gaps. This staircase gracefully lifts on a balanced lever to reveal a storage area for bikes. Turn right and you’ll find the open-plan kitchen, dining room and reception room, perfect for gatherings thanks to the open space and minimal, modern design. The stainless steel kitchen utilities don’t dominate the space, instead the word burning fire with marble bench does. The bright white colour scheme of the living space contrasts with darker hues of the kitchen, quietly separating the two spaces without the need for a wall.
The first floor features two bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, and a family bathroom. The bright family bathroom seems spacious thanks to the white marble and tiling which reflects the natural light pouring through the window. With underfloor heating below the herringbone tiles, this luxurious bathroom has it all. The master bedroom is found on the second floor and it has an en-suite tiled with marble mosaic tiles. The en-suite is a great example of how to make the most of space: there are no superfluous details, leaving a beautiful bathroom of essentials.
