Mews houses in family-friendly Queens Park

Homes at Bravington Mews are close to popular schools and parks and feature summer roof terraces.

Buyers priced out of Notting Hill continue to trail north up Ladbroke Grove, across Grand Union Canal and Harrow Road to Queen’s Park, where neat Victorian red-brick cottages built by the Artisans, Labourers and General Dwelling Company, the so-called “five per cent philanthropists”, cast a spell.

Today, these delightful, if fairly modest homes, which were originally built to provide cheap rental accommodation for manual workers, cost seven-figure sums, while the wider district’s late Victorian and Edwardian houses, particularly those in the conservation area ringing the eponymous park with its bandstand and tennis courts, have media executives scrambling to put down sealed bids.

Into this rich mix has been dropped Bravington Mews, seven modern mews houses and a detached coach house, concealed in a former builder’s yard close to bustling Kilburn Lane. The address is part of a family-friendly neighbourhood that boasts popular schools, shops, churches, a library, art centre and health club, plus the organic cafés and wine bars on increasingly fashionable Chamberlayne Road.

Prices range from £1,325,000 to £1,650,000. The houses are freehold and come with roof terrace and secure parking behind the gated entrance. Call estate agents Fraser on 020 7723 1284.
