Hanover Private are real estate specialists in super prime property sales and lettings in Marylebone.

Nestled between two of London’s finest expanses of green space, Hyde Park and Regent’s Park, Marylebone is a diverse, lively and chic area with many European residents. The centrally-located Marylebone High Street was lovingly declared the ‘Best Street in Britain’ in 2002 by BBC Radio 2, and has only continued to grow in charm and prestige since then.

Marylebone takes its name from the ancient parish of St Mary at the Bourne, and residential development in the area began during the eighteenth century under the direction of Edward Harley, Earl of Oxford, and surveyor John Prince. Beginning with the construction of Cavendish Square, Marylebone gradually grew into a distinguished residential area, much of which is still owned by aristocratic estates including the Portman Estate and the Howard de Walden Estate.

This regal history and aristocratic ownership has allowed Marylebone to resist most temptations of modern development and remain as quaint and regulated as it was during the Victorian period, despite the close proximity to bustling Oxford Street. In recent years the regeneration of the Grade II listed Marylebone Fire Station and other buildings on Chiltern Street by hotelier André Balazs has contributed significantly to a surge in popularity here. Famous figures and members of London society flock to the Chiltern Firehouse Hotel and Restaurant, leading some to consider Marylebone as the new Mayfair.

What makes Marylebone so special?

Despite being many miles from the French capital, there is a Parisian air to Marylebone, as a result of the chic boutiques, charming cafes and restaurants with on-street tables, and the high number of international clientele. Residents are also perfectly positioned to enjoy both of London’s finest parks, with Regent’s Park to the north and Hyde Park to the west, allowing easy access to many acres of green space. Finally, the world-renowned Harley Street is located in the heart of Marylebone so locals can rest assured that the best possible medical care is, quite literally, on their doorstep.

Marylebone property types

Marylebone is home to some of the most elite properties London has to offer, with all residential tastes catered for, from Grade II-listed period homes to luxury penthouses. For Georgian stucco-fronted terraced houses and semi-detached villas the most prestigious garden squares are Bryanston Square, Manchester Square, Montagu Square and the famous Fitzroy Square, formerly home to the Bloomsbury Group and regularly used as the setting for period dramas. Contemporary luxury can be found in The Chilterns development and the Rathbone Square development, both of which offer unparalleled opulence and amenities such as private swimming pools.
