The three-bedroom property in Weymouth Mews features a living wall, integral garage, terrace and patio. 

At £2,318 per square foot it represents the most expensive square footage for a mews house in the area.

It costs £500 more per square foot than the average property price for a W1 address, according to local estate agent Marsh & Parsons.

Often located on cobbled streets and in culs-de-sac, mews houses offer a peaceful, village-style vibe in the heart of the city, and commonly sell for a premium.

They have come a long way from their origins as stables for horses and coaches, and accommodation for servants. These days, the traditional exteriors open up to sleek, modern living spaces.

"With celebrity arts and media owners, mews houses are often transformed into striking modern works of art, complete with light boxes and cleverly installed terraces," says Simon Hedley, from estate agent Druce, who sold the Weymouth Mews property.
