Box of delights
A perfumed stroll through one of the world’s most spectacular rose gardens brings you to Cosway Street, a home that’s surely as lovely as any flower. But we’ll warrant that this home will delight whatever the season.
On winter nights, cosy down with your hosts’ collection of books, or perhaps have a singalong around the piano. In the summer, head up to the roof terrace and salute the stars. With a stunning collection of art, and antique furniture at every turn, here’s a home to cherish.
Cosway Street is owned by a creative pair.
One is a session musician, who’s played all over the world, and nurtures a love of Indian food. The other is an artist who loves collecting his friends’ works.
Yes, Cosway Street is sweetly petite. But this home has character that larger flats can only dream of. The open plan living space has a comfortable, velvet-clad sofa, a ravishingly pretty chaise longue, and, of course, the piano.
Art is everywhere, and, when you’re done admiring the choc-a-bloc walls, head to the hall. The bathroom’s small but beautiful, the bedroom boasts a writing desk, Venetian glass, and some pull-down stairs to – the roof terrace! Inspired by Morocco’s riads, this gorgeous open-air den holds a host of herbs, a gas-fired bbq and seating for enough guests to ensure that your balmy summer night goes on very late indeed.
When morning finally comes, the manicured idyll of Regents Park will, of course, be calling. If a picnic’s the thing, then the delis of Marylebone High Street’s will leave your hamper bursting with artisan meats, cheeses and the finest organic fruit and veg. If the weather’s looking at all threatening, you may find yourself stocking up on a little cashmere and perhaps a few of pairs of shoes, too. Cosway Street’s right in the heart of zone 1, so a cab can have you wherever you need to be in just a handful of minutes.
