Mews: hooks and curly trees

So you buy your million pound Mews house in London.  How do you make the best use of it?   You can keep the stable doors, and garage your Jaguar inside.

The doors on the upper storeys may be less useful, unless you can winch your Porsche up there.

I don't think the horses used these doors.

If you have any space at all between your front door and the cobbled street, plant some shrubs in containers.

Nothing too rural – you need to keep the chic urban look.  A few curly trees will give you a rather special place to soak up the afternoon sun.

    These houses look very chic . . . but I wouldn’t want to actually LIVE in one of them! Thanks for the education on mews! ;->

      Very chic, and located in fantastic places if you like city living. But not much space, or access to the open road or the mountains….and an American RV would never get round the corners into these streets!

    I will take the house and the Ferrari, please.

      The only catch is that your Ferrari will be restricted to 30 miles per hour on all the local roads, and the cobblestones will wreck its suspension.

    You’d get wicked tan lines from those curly trees… 😉

      And if you’re sunbathing in a bikini, you’ll shock the London taxi drivers….actually, no, I’m wrong, nothing can shock them.

        You’re having a heatwave at the moment, right? I’m sure there are a lot of scantily-clad ladies walking around!
