Bentinck Mews, London W1
From the mews, for which residents’ parking is available, entry is to a hallway with cloak storage on the right. Ahead lies a staircase of rough-sawn oak with recessed handrail and shadow gaps. Encapsulating the conservation of space throughout, the staircase lifts on a beautifully balanced lever system to reveal a storage area for bikes.
Through a full-height pivot door to the right is the open-plan kitchen, dining and reception room. Unusually for a mews house, light pours in from both front and rear aspects throughout. Flooring of light European oak, laid in endgrain blocks, is juxtaposed by the dark-fumed oak of full-height timber panelling and bi-fold doors. These part to reveal a concealed bespoke kitchen in stainless steel, with appliances by Miele and Fisher and Paykel, and tapware by Vola. A gas fire is set behind bespoke joinery with a base of Calacatta marble. Above, a sliding door reveals an integrated AV system, with record player and vinyl storage. Ceiling speakers are by Bowers and Wilkins.
Rough-sawn oak continues from the ascending staircase onto the first-floor hallway and throughout the upper levels. The first floor has two bedrooms, both with built-in wardrobes, and a family bathroom, with underfloor heating beneath herringbone tiles, and tapware by Dornbracht. Utilities can also be found on this level.
The master bedroom is on the second floor and has an en-suite shower room with marble mosaic tiles also laid in herringbone, underfloor heating and brass taps by Vola. Joinery in all the bedrooms is bespoke by Italian brand Porro.
Studio Mackereth is an award-winning, multi-disciplinary collective of architects and designers formed by architect Sally Mackereth in 2013. Their work ranges from high-end residences to gallery and luxury retail design. Probably best put by The Modern House founder Matt Gibberd in an article for The World of Interiors;
‘Mackereth is that rare thing: an architect with a genuine understanding of interior detail’.
Bentinck Mews is situated within the Harley Street Conservation Area in one of London’s most desirable areas. Marylebone Lane itself meanders north from Oxford Street, with charming independent restaurants, cafés, bars and pubs, peppered amongst its Georgian architecture. At the north end the Lane becomes Marylebone High Street for an array of boutiques, grocers and restaurants, and the further offerings of Chiltern Street are a three-minute walk away. A farmers’ market takes place each Sunday on Aybrook Road.
Manchester Square is close by for green space, with the wider open expanses of Hyde Park and Regents Park within easy walking distance. The Hope Montessori Nursery is situated two minutes’ walk from the house and on the corner, next to The Ivy Café Marelybone, is Wetherby Senior School.
Bond Street is the closest station (around four minutes’ walk) for Central and Jubilee Line Underground services, and will be welcoming the Crossrail in 2019.
