Marylebone is situated in the City of Westminster, nestled nicely between two Royal Parks – Regent’s Park and Hyde Park – bordering Fitzrovia, Mayfair and Bayswater.
Centrally located near London’s West End, offering the perfect combination of affluent city living in a highly sought-after environment, a diverse and international community, cultural opportunities aplenty, and green spaces on the doorstep.
The area is known for its cosmopolitan residents; US and French buyers with and without families particularly favour this area of London and there are excellent schools nearby. Marylebone is popular with celebrities too. John Lennon, Noel Gallagher and Madonna are just some of the famous residents to have lived on these quiet and elegant streets.
Marylebone is home to Regent’s Park and Hyde Park, two of London’s finest green locations. This is a perfect place to walk the dog, have a picnic on a summer’s day or for when you want to go for a stroll and a run.
Then there’s the fantastic shopping district including the world-famous Oxford Street and hundreds of other outlets. Marylebone High Street has many high-end retailers competing for the position which means smaller, more bespoke, quirky brands light up nearby Chiltern Street, Quebec Street and Seymour Place.
The wealth of lifestyle offerings available nearby includes many famous restaurants, bars and pubs. Chiltern Street Firehouse is the latest of the eateries on offer along with Daylesford, Zayna, Jikoni, Il Baretto, Galvin, Fishworks, and The Ivy Café, to mention a few.
There’s no shortage of attractive period properties, conversions and mews to choose from, and many streets are lined with Georgian and Edwardian-style homes featuring classic red bricks and white stucco-fronted stone. There’s a wide choice of modern flats and luxury apartments in Marylebone and, over the last decade, new developments of apartments and lofts have also become popular. With such a variety of desirable properties in a prime location, Marylebone is one of London’s most exclusive residential areas.
