Marylebone Estate Agents Property Guide

Marylebone has a new lease of life, thanks to recent regeneration projects.  There was a time when it was just charity shops and ironmongers.

It’s now an eclectic, vibrant village, giving Mayfair and Soho a run for its money.

Marylebone Property

The area is owned by three landlords, The Portman Estate, Howard De Walden Estates and the Church Commissioners, who own property west of Edgware Road.

Marylebone is famous for its quiet streets of majestic Georgian squares and terraces, pretty mews houses, spacious terraced homes and Edwardian and Victorian mansion flats. Whether you’re looking for a studio flat or a large family home, Marylebone property has a lot to offer, from Georgian to art deco style and imposing Gothic mysteriousness.

Marylebone estate agents will advise that you pay a premium living near the High Street. The Portman Estate has spent £12 million regenerating Portman Village, the area tucked behind Oxford Street which runs from New Quebec Street to Seymour Place, offering you more for your money.

Portman Estate has refurbished Georgian buildings, renewed pavements with Yorkstone and introduced traffic-calming raised brick islands. Halfway down the street, new luxury housing development, The Chilterns, is being built by Galliard with a swimming pool and its own cinema.

It has been a commendable priority of the landlords to create a balanced, community-led high street with a good mix of uses, creating a better residential and business location.

Marylebone Buyers and Residents

Marylebone estate agents are enthusiastic about Marylebone’s growth and development, especially over the last 15 years. Its vibrant and cosmopolitan ambience is attracting young professionals as well as foreign investors. There's a good mix of Europeans, Americans, plus some Middle Eastern buyers.

There's such diversity, - a mixture of old and new. Property in Marylebone has always been popular with the rich and famous: Charles Dickens, Guy Ritchie, Madonna, Noel Gallagher, Sienna Miller and many others. Alongside the latest actor or singer, there are people who have lived here for 40-50 years.

Marylebone has certainly become younger in terms of profile, and far more family-friendly. Developers in the Marylebone area have worked very hard to create a unique and exciting mix of long standing and newly introduced independent boutiques and traders; newsagents, fresh food retailers and dry cleaners are encouraged alongside fashion retailers paying competitive West End rents.
