1 Raby Mews

This house has an internal area (including integral garage) of 151sqr.m. The construction is unusual in that it has a steel frame sitting on ground beams on 8m deep piled foundations. The longitudinal section through the house is a series of half levels, hence the steel frame.

Externally the house is designed to complement the other mews houses; at its gable end the roof has the characteristic ‘M profile’ of 2 gables with a valley in between; however, the central section of the roof is filled in to allow a third floor.  

The house is built of Bath stone ashlar to front and rear elevations with the exposed gable end rendered; the main roof is slate and the rear flat roof is covered in sedum.

Rising through the three floors is a metal staircase with oak treads and a balustrade of stainless steel and toughened glass. External windows and doors are high performance with external aluminium frames, internal timber and double glazed with integral blinds

The house has photovoltaic panels on its flat roof section, a mechanical ventilation with heat recovery system (MVHR) and each floor has underfloor heating served by a gas condensing boiler. The house EPC is B rated; it produces 1.7 tonnes of carbon per annum compared with the average UK figure of 6.
