Dream Homes: Marylebone

Dream Home Manchester Street Marylebone

Refined Luxury.

Mixing classic Georgian architecture, a chic modern refurb, and an unbeatable central London location, this charming townhouse really has it all.

Marylebone’s perennially beautiful Manchester Street is home to this stately Georgian double fronted townhouse. Exuding elegance, the five-storey property has been comprehensively and sympathetically refurbished to the highest standards. It boasts a classic brick and stucco façade, huge sash windows, and some original interior features. Yet for all its period charm, it can also lay claim to air conditioning and a lift to all floors, and it blends old and new with pizazz. The ground floor kitchen is housed within a strikingly modern and light-loving glass structure complete with a separate breakfast room and terrace. Also on the ground floor is a spacious dining room, a library, and a handy guest cloakroom.

Up the swooping staircase you’ll find a wonderfully refined double reception room with a butler’s kitchen and bar area; up again and the grand principal suite takes over the entire second floor: think a dressing room as sizeable as the already commodious sleep space, and luxuriously, not one but two en suites. The top floor boasts three further bedrooms, one with an en suite shower room, and a further family bathroom.

But as with many modern refurbs, the fun stuff is in the basement. Here you’ll find a spacious gym and a state-of-the-art media room, perfect for snuggling into a well-earned movie night after a vigorous workout. There’s also a versatile fifth bedroom, or home office, should you need it. When it comes to green outside space, the property boasts access to the beautifully maintained gardens of Manchester Square. That said, the verdant Regent’s Park is just a short stroll away – and of course, in the other direction, the buzzy West End with all its shops, restaurants, galleries and theatres to hand. In other words, this elegant period property could not be better positioned.
