      Have a signed contract on an awesome house. 2.5+ acres, hot tub, fire pit, garage with epoxy floor...

      Me, walking down the long driveway.


      Not my Rover


      View from the back yard (dogs are going to love it here)





      2 car garage with freshly epoxied floor.


      There go my chances of owning a wrx in the near future.

      Thank you

      It only looks nice- it's an incredibly small home. 1575 sq ft, originally a 4 bedroom but was converted to a 3 bedroom. Home was owned by a wealthy family who went bankrupt in 07', house was purchased by an interior design company and completely renovated- the renovation company went bankrupt and it was bought by a realty company, who was bought out by a larger realty company who wanted to unload the home ASAP. I ended up practically stealing it a few years ago. The home was appraised in early January and I almost fainted when I saw the figure. London has become THE place for the wealthy to hide money in property and mews are on the top of their list.

      The good: freehold home, garage, gated mews community, fancy-schmancy area code and surrounded by 10+ million dollar mews, neighbors are never home (both neighbors on either side I've only seen a handful of times in the last year- they're all wealthy people with vacation homes)

      The bad: incredibly small, no front or back yard, no room for expansion, unbelievably strict neighborhood rules

      My Wolf grill when it was new. Could of bought the entire grill section at Home Depot for less than this bad boy.







      Nice and broke in now. Although I still have not used the side burner. I love my outdoor kitchen. Sink and bar are to the left. Installed a 40 inch tv out there today actually.

      I'm asking because i was in London recently visiting a friend who studies there, we walked down through the mews in South Kensington and were fantasizing about how awesome it'd be to own a place there one day haha

      Awesome catch in any case! I hope you're enjoying it, despite the limitations

      Hahaha this is a pretty awesome coincidence I just google-mapped our route from Gloucester Rd to Knightsbridge, we definitely went through Ennismore Gardens mews, not sure about Princes Gate.

      Anyhow, superb location! Seriously, I wish i lived in a place where Exhibition Rd is just a few paces away

      Haha.. and Imperial College also, I'm a fan of the remake of the road, it sounds like a bunch of silly gimmicks when you read about it but it works in real life (the road has been remade with very little to separate pedestrians from cars from bicycles, creating a "shared space".. difficult to imagine, but a pleasant experience)

      It's nice to live close to so many parks and museums, yes- but it's a nightmare with traffic. Something like 15 million tourists visit exhibition yearly and it makes for a pita when driving in traffic. One of the reasons they gated our mews community was all the foot traffic of people looking at houses. Most the mews streets are gating up now and hiring security and there's no such things as open houses anymore- everything is strictly by appointment only. The fact we have gated community gardens is pretty mindblowing to me.

      I've always had a dream of converting a commercial building into a living space, but this looks purpose-built as a residence. We don't see that around here as space was never a premium in the Motor City. We have no mass-transit so sprawl was the order of the day.

      I am confident you are wrong, but instead of illustrating why, I will just make disparaging remarks about your reading comprehension.

      Most mews were originally carriage houses built in the 1700's to the 1800's. Horses in the bottom of the house and the family above, essentially it keeps the smell of the animals at ground level and the living quarters above and away from it and the building type allowed for a lot of homes in a small area. Since the 90's the mews style homes have exploded in demand and are mostly completely renovated mansion type homes and due to the fact most have a garage they've become extremely popular with London wealth. Most mews were selling for 400-600k in the mid 90's and now are averaging around 2.5m£.

      My home is the 3rd oldest on the street, built in 1901. The two oldest are 1899 and 1900 I believe. The original home where mine stands was torn down in 1900 and the current structure built and renovated numerous times over the years. In my opinion mews living is the way to go in London if you want to be in the central part of the city- having a garage is well worth it.

      Ohhh ok, yeah- I thought they were HRE. Everything I have is stocky-stock wheels. I could never mentally justify spending money on wheels, but I always drool when I see a nice set.

      House might be going on the market soon if anyone is interested

      I've been off work for the last week and have been spending way too much time crunching numbers and looking at homes outside London. I could sell my current home, buy a home twice the size on 2-3 acres outside of London, have half the mortgage and a 3-4 car garage. Being I work from home 70-80% of the time now its starting to look like a real possibility.

      Girlfriend wants to keep the current home and buy a weekend cottage outside of London on a acre or so. Once the baby is born we're going to start looking at both cottages and primary homes outside of the city

      Interestingly enough my close family friend owns that company (the Schroeter's). Wolfgang and his wife have an AMAZING place in Toronto with a mind blowing grill. Their lake home is even sillier. Thanks to your purchases I have enjoyed some really nice places to stay

      That parcel right there alone is more than double the size of what is in my original post. Has anybody seen my monocle?

      Do I have the oldest house now?
