Story of the Home
“When we bought the apartment in 2008, we were very specific about the location and would only consider a few roads. De Walden Street had always been our favourite and is arguably one of the prettiest in Marylebone Village, so when this apartment came available we knew it was the one for us.
A big attraction was that the apartment has its own private front door, providing extra privacy. Another feature that is very rare in this part of Marylebone Village, is the large outside terrace. Although it is not demised, we have sole access and use of it which is fantastic. It’s a real treat to sit outside in the summer months.
The apartment needed total refurbishment, we relished the prospect of starting from scratch and completing the renovations to the standard we would expect for our own home. We spared no expense and created a layout perfect for entertaining, with an open plan kitchen reception room and guest W/C on the ground floor and two double bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms below. We also have a bespoke home office which has come in very useful recently.
Marylebone has every sort of shop and restaurant. We love Fishworks on Marylebone High Street, the restaurant at the Wallace Collection, and you can find the best steak and chips at Relais de Venise. They don’t take bookings there, you just turn up and can usually get a table. The Royal Academy has a lovely members restaurant and a good café. Over the road from there is of course The Wolseley. For great Chinese food we recommend that you take a trip to Mr Chow’s.
We particularly enjoy being told by our friends and visitors that De Walden Street is the prettiest and quietest street in Marylebone Village. We are lucky to have great neighbours and there is a real sense of community spirit.
On Sundays there is a very good farmers market behind Waitrose and another open-air market on Saturdays featuring vintage clothes and jewellery. It’s tucked between the St. Marylebone Church on Marylebone Road and The Conran Shop on Marylebone High Street.
Walking around the rose gardens in Regents Park is a joy and a favourite pastime is the open-air theatre in Regents Park during the summer months. There is also an Everyman cinema on Baker Street which we love to visit.
Marylebone really does have it all! We are very sad to be leaving however it is time for us to move on.
Located in a quiet side street just off Marylebone High Street, I can walk to Oxford Circus, Bond Street, Baker Street and Great Portland Street Tube Stations in 5 minutes.”
