Fonthill Mews: NY in N4 – New York loft style homes transform a Victorian London Mews
Fonthill Mews, A Victorian mews in Finsbury Park, London, last incarnated as drab 1980’s styled offices has been magnificently transformed into a collection of 22 New York loft inspired houses and apartments.
Set in a historic mews, its original purpose was to provide stable/coach house accommodation for the main houses on Fonthill Road. Today the private gated mews has painstakingly been converted and given a new lease of life by residential developer LPC Living and constructed by construction company Forrest.
Simon Ashdown, Director at LPC Living commented “We wanted to create a development that is unique and sought inspiration from the mews’ original Victorian heritage, but with a modern twist, inspired by New York loft interiors. The result is fantastic, providing a modern, but very tranquil haven in the heart of London – quite unique in today’s bustling city.
“Stepping into Fonthill Mews, through timber and iron gates, you encounter winding communal gardens punctuated with footlights and raised lamps that light the way to the unique properties. A mixture of plants, grasses and sculpted lawns underscore the landscaping, adding to the serenity of the development.”

Fonthill Mews interiors
The interiors of each property are an appealing combination of modernist and heritage. The styling of each very individual home includes American white oak flooring, hand painted fittings, bespoke iron work and industrial fixtures. The mix of warm natural materials with contemporary design features creates a harmonious balance of functionality and aesthetics. Externally most homes have decked patios together with glass framed terraces on the upper floor.
Located off Lennox Road and within easy walking distance of Finsbury Park underground and rail station, Fonthill Mews is well located for travel into the West End and City, as well as being a stroll away from the bars and restaurants of Stroud Green Road.
