Marylebone for Central London LuxuryAugust 29, 2019
It may feel like Marylebone is experiencing a bit of a renaissance, attracting new restaurants and hotels and being home to the latest celebrity hotspot, Chiltern Firehouse, but for those in the know, Marylebone has been a sought-after destination since the 18th Century.
A prime London location, offering luxury homes and investment properties in a truly central London location, it really is worth exploring.
A sanctuary in a central location
Bordered by Oxford Street, Edgware Road, Regent’s Park, Portland Place, Marylebone is a highly desirable area offering a little haven in central London. The Howard de Walden and Portman Estates manage the majority of the Marylebone area and have made substantial investments to continually improve it. They have created Marylebone Village and Portman Village, both destinations of choice with a strong sense of community. Marylebone boasts period properties, shopping unique to the area, independent cafes and wide array of cultural offerings.
Marylebone has no shortage of exclusive homes to offer. Large Georgian houses in garden squares, Victorian terrace houses, Edwardian properties and Twenties and Thirties mansion flats, many keeping period features. There are also quality new apartment developments focused on luxury living.
Although close to one of London’s most famous shopping districts, Oxford Street, Marylebone does high streets in its own distinctive way, making it a popular shopping destination. Fashionable boutiques sit alongside long-established favourites, up and coming independent retailers and beautiful interiors shops such as Conran and Cath Kidson, all adding to the desirability of the area.
Eating and Drinking
Something else you may not have expected from Marylebone is the specialist food outlets and regular food and crafts markets offering something quite different. Cafes, Michelin starred restaurants and bars offer alfresco dining away from the frantic pace of Oxford street. There aren’t many places that can boast their own whisky bottler, but Cadenhead’s Whiskey Shop and Tasting room are on Chiltern street.
If you are looking for some culture in your local area, Marylebone won’t disappoint. Close proximity to Regent’s Park offers treats such as its rose garden, open-air theatre and London zoo. Madame Tussauds, the Wallace collection and the Royal Academy of music are also close by.
Marylebone’s ability to attract investors, the rich and famous, wealthy professionals and families, all desiring the urban village lifestyle is a testament to the care and investment that has gone into creating this popular region.
