Camden Mews is a quiet cobbled street that runs parallel with Camden Square. It is renowned for its innovative and diverse modern architecture, and has been home to a wealth of architects for many decades. Its most famous resident is Ted Cullinan, who still lives in this house that he built for himself in 1964.

Cullinan has created a thoughtful interior with unexpected views and excellent natural light. The upper floor contains a large open-plan reception room / kitchen /dining room, with a glazed wall which runs the full length of the south west wall of the property and looks out over the terrace. The terrace is planted with lush, fragrant flora, and there is a table and bench for eating out.

The ground floor contains two double bedrooms, a shower room and a toilet. Slate brick flooring has been used throughout downstairs and is continued through to the courtyard as well as the outside steps and walkways, giving a seamless blend between inside and out.

This house is approximately equidistant between the Underground stations at Camden Town (Northern Line), Kentish Town (Northern Line) and Caledonian Road (Piccadilly Line). Camden Road train station is close at hand, and there are also overground services from Kentish Town and Caledonian Road. The house is well placed for access to the new Eurostar terminal at St Pancras International.

The South East England region

Camden Town, often shortened to Camden, is one of the 35 major centres identified in the London Plan and theerfore has easy transport access to any part of London. The town became an important location during the early development of the railways and is also located on the London canal network. However, its industrial economic basis has been replaced by retail, tourism and entertainment, including a number of internationally-known markets and music venues that are strongly associated with alternative culture.

Its markets date from the 1970's. Camden Lock market proper started in a former timber-yard in 1973, and is now surrounded by five more markets: Buck Street market, Stables market, Camden Lock village, and an indoor market in the Electric Ballroom. The markets are a major tourist attraction at weekends, selling goods of all types including fashion, lifestyle, books, food, junk/antiques and more bizarre items; they and the surrounding shops are popular with young people, in particular those searching for "alternative" clothing.

Central London/Zone 2

SITUATED

Camden Town is north-northwest of the West End. To the north are the hills of Hampstead and Highgate. The subterranean River Fleet flows from its source on Hampstead Heath through Camden Town south to the Thames.

ALTERNATIVE TRAVEL

The Regent's Canal runs through Camden Town. Canal-boat trips along the canal from Camden Lock are popular. Many of the handrails by the bridges show deep marks worn by the towropes by which horses pulled canal barges until the 1950s, and it is still possible to see ramps on the canal bank designed to assist horses which fell in the canal after being startled by the noise of a train. The towpath is a pedestrian and cycle route which runs continuously from Little Venice through Camden Lock to the Islington Tunnel.

ATTRACTIONS

Camden Town Underground station is near the markets and other attractions.The station was not designed to cope with the volume of traffic it handles since the area increased in popularity. It is very crowded at weekends, and is closed to outbound passengers on Sunday afternoons for safety reasons.

Head up Chalk Farm road to The Roundhouse which was a locomotive engine roundhouse constructed in 1847 for the London and Birmingham Railway but has been converted to a theatre, arts centre and music venue.
