This outstanding three-bedroomed new home is one of a trio of bespoke properties designed by architects Robert and Jessica Barker, set within a private mews in South London.
The contemporary design of the award winning mews, is based around the communal courtyard, and the vertical gardens. The ground floor is designed as a sequence of living spaces both indoors and out that flow from one to another, yet can be shut off for privacy. The upper floor accommodates three double bedrooms (one en-suite) and family bathroom.
The mews is approached from the quiet street via a set of laser cut steel gates, down a long ‘edible’ drive, lined with dwarf espalier fruit trees. Hidden from the street, the driveway opens into the central courtyard within which a geometric meadow of grasses, wildflowers and gravel slabs form the central focus for the three mews houses. The slender brick piers rise up from the planted strips, covered in mesh trellis and planted with a mix of vines, clematis, jasmine and honeysuckle, climbing across the facades.
Upon entering the house, the hallway (with WC cloakroom and storage cupboard) leads either to the large kitchen/dining room, or to the separate sitting room. The sitting room and kitchen/dining room are connected by double doors to a private through courtyard, which completes the circuit of the ground floor spaces. The continuous resin flooring, running inside and out, gives the feeling of a outdoor room, whilst the west facing courtyard also serves as an external atrium to the bedrooms and en-suite.
The large bespoke kitchen is fitted to a very high standard with integrated appliances, induction hob, dishwasher, fridge and freezer; and finished with a solid surface worktop, breakfast bar and mirrored splash backs.
Smooth resin stairs lead up to a day lit gallery landing, running the length of the house, and to the three double bedrooms, and bathrooms. There is an airing cupboard, and laundry cupboard for washing machine and tumble dryer. The main bathroom is top lit and lined with glass, concealed cupboards and wall mounted fittings. The en-suite shower room, is also glass-lined, reflecting the trees and foliage into the room.
The generous full height windows frame views through and across the mews, bringing in copious amounts of natural light. The striking veil created by the trelliage mesh provides screening, greenery and casts intricate woven shadows into the clean interiors.
Topped with a green roof, the modern mews house has triple glazing and high levels of insulation and enjoys gas underfloor heating throughout.
The mews is conveniently located within 5 mins walk of Forest Hill Station which has rail connections into London Bridge and the City in 15 mins, and via the Overground into Canary Wharf and Central London in 20 mins and 30 mins respectively.
Forest Hill itself is a lively local centre with a good selection of restaurants, pubs and coffee shops, a specialist butcher, haberdashery and other shops. Forest Hill is home to the Horniman Museum and Park, and the recently completed Forest Hill Pools, and is conveniently located near to Dulwich Village and Woodlands. It is also well known for its creative community of artists and designers. Forest Hill is also close to several very good schools, including independent St Dunstan’s College and Dulwich College.
The house would be ideal for professionals or families.
