Hot Property: Aston Chase, Marylebone

For Sale: Oldbury Place, W1U.

Marylebone is home to some beautiful period mews houses, but perhaps most impressive are the architecturally enhanced ones that are sympathetic to the original building, yet wildly creative in their contemporary expansions. This is a prime example. Deceptively spacious, this four bed, three bath residence is arranged over five floors and boasts a whopping near 3,000 sq ft of chic and modern living space at every turn. The pièce de résistance? Its double-height light well that floods the property with sunshine.
