Quiet, private, hidden and small, mews houses have had a surprisingly rock n roll fan base for decades and routinely get snapped up by louche types.

James Robinson, associate director of Lurot Brand, an estate agent that specialises in mews properties explains “they have a real funk factor because of the privacy they offer. We constantly sell to popstars and actors.”

They often offer a freehold house for the same price as a leasehold flat in the main house out the front, and those same big houses absorb the street noise, keeping the mews properties nicely quiet.

And they are often no through roads, meaning they have a real sense of community.

Here is our round-up of the best mews properties in the area on the market at the moment. Snap one up and become one of Robinson’s “mews-o-philes,” bijou home addicts with large collections of mews houses.

This two-bedroom cottage is in a cul de sac ensuring maximum peace and quiet.

The open plan living area is bright and modern with wooden floors and a neat fitted corner kitchen.

There is also a walled courtyard garden hidden away at the back of this little gem.

It would need some work to be turned into a residential property but for a spot in a sought after area it’s worth the investment.

The street is a mixture of residential houses and small business premises.

A modern take on the mews concept, this home is an architect-designed delight tucked away on a small cobbled street.

On the large side for a mews property, the house has four bedrooms so would be ideal for a family.

There is also a second-floor balcony leading off the master bedroom for those craving some outdoor space.

The higher price point of this property reflects the fact that there is planning consent for an additional floor to be built at the top of the property.

Set behind Hampstead High Street, the house has a patio garden and a sun terrace.

There is also an art studio in the garden.
