Story of the Home
“Back in 2005 we decided to move from a manor house in Oxfordshire to London and began our search for a new home in January. We looked at about a dozen properties but when we saw 12 Park Road, we knew our search was over and we moved in to the flat that summer!
The apartment met all our criteria – a large bright entertaining area that could be shut off from the bedrooms and bathrooms, a view of the park, a balcony and the right space for a wine cellar! It also had a secure garage below.
A lovely feature of the flat is the large reception room which, because it has windows on both the park side and the road side is always full of light. We have had dinner parties for up to 12 people and drinks parties for considerably more. During lockdown, we have so much enjoyed our balcony especially for morning coffee and evening cocktails.
It is glorious to be able to walk straight out into Regent’s Park and we love to walk there every day. The park is so big that even at the height of summer, you can always find a private spot for picnics!
We also love to visit the park cafes for breakfast, lunch or coffee and our grandchildren really enjoy taking pedalos on the lake.
One of the many joys of living here is that you can walk to almost anything you need including shops, stations, doctor’s surgery, dentists, banks and cinema.
As well as Baker Street, Park Road is conveniently close to Marylebone High Street with its many excellent shops and restaurants including a branch of Waitrose.
We are incredibly well-placed for transport links. Baker Street Station (which has five tube lines running through it) is about 4 mins walk away, Marylebone Station and the Chiltern Line is about 7 mins. walk.
There are also some very useful shops in Marylebone station. From the motoring point of view it is extremely quick and easy to get onto the M40 motorway and out of London.
When we were looking for our flat we invented a concept called The Lemon Test. It works like this: It is 7.00 pm and you are longing for a gin & tonic. Alas, there are no lemons in the fridge. How long does it take to get to the nearest shop open at that hour to buy a lemon? The answer here is 10 seconds because there is a Co-Op supermarket about 12 paces from the outer front door. They also have a delicious bakery for our morning croissants.”
