A new generation of light-filled, open-plan townhouses is enticing Londoners fed up with the constraints of a Georgian or Victorian home.

Mulberry Mews in Islington’s Highbury Fields conservation area is made up of seven such contemporary houses. “Increasingly, we find families and even childless couples want a house with the hallmarks of a designer loft — open, dramatic, exciting and flexible, with good storage space, high-quality finishes and up-to-date cabling,” says Daniel O’Brien of estate agent Hamptons International. 
“Period townhouses, often tall and narrow with rooms stacked on top of each other, can’t compete with intelligently designed, energy-efficient, low-maintenance modern ones.” Gated Mulberry Mews is set around a  tree-lined square. The five-bedroom homes, up to 2,551sq ft, have full-height glazing, a large utility room, garden and secure parking. From £2.6 million. Call 020 7717 5303.
