Marylebone offers high quality village life in the heart of Central London
Marylebone is an area with a rich cultural history – not least as the fictional home of Victorian master detective Sherlock Holmes. Situated between Hyde Park and Regent’s Park, it offers those looking to rent or buy a property a high-quality village life with the convenience of living in in the heart of central London.
These benefits attract professionals and City workers, international house hunters, celebrities and the medical fraternity who have practices along Harley Street and Wimpole Street.
The families of two prominent Georgian landowners – the Portman and Howard de Walden estates – built much of what is now Marylebone. Each of the estates strived to create a varied and graceful environment of avenues and squares and Marylebone is still well known for its distinctive architecture.
Marylebone has a high percentage of flats in modern purpose-built apartments, elegant Victorian mansion blocks and converted Georgian houses, although there are some very large five- and six-storey houses and some smaller mews homes.

Marylebone is particularly well connected when it comes to public transport with great transport train and bus links across London and overland trains from Marylebone station providing connections with the Chilterns and Birmingham.
