Marylebone is an affluent inner-city area of central London, located within the City of Westminster, that can be roughly defined as bounded by Oxford Street to the south, Marylebone Road to the north, Edgware Road to the west and Great Portland Street to the east.
A broader definition designates the historic area as Marylebone Village and encompasses neighbouring Regent’s Park, Baker Street and the area immediately north of Marylebone Road. In the heart of the West End, this well-established area is jam packed with tourist sights, theatres, shops, restaurants, bars and city streetentertainment.
The commercial and professional world also call it home, with period properties long since taken over by offices and consulting rooms – Harley Street being one of its most famous addresses. Whilst all this activity takes up a good deal of space, there is still a surprising number of residential properties to be found and the area’s regained status as a fashionable place to live has fast made W1 a property hot spot.
Most residents in Marylebone are flat dwellers, homes range from small studios to company extravagance, housed in red brick mansion block conversions, as well as 1930’s and 1960’s developments.
