Get the best of both worlds in this sleepy Georgian mews, with its villagey vibes and cosmopolitan conveniences. Slip into a new role and sample the cultural feast on your doorstep, from the historic Wallace Collection to the world famous Daunt bookshop. Beyond, explore the bustle of central London or the incomparable Mayfair, a location scout’s fantasy. After a day of London dalliances, head back to enjoy a sizzling BBQ in Woodstock Mews’ exclusive communal garden, or sit out on the cobbled mews street and relax with a glass of Malbec.
In the limelight
Your hosts are a successful film producer, her musician partner and their two much-loved Hungarian vizslas. Together they enjoy curling up on their bespoke sofas and watching movies, or walking their canine comrades in the nearby parks before retiring back home for dinner concocted in their state of the art kitchen.
On with the show
Step into this three storey home and be arrested by the stainless poise of the modern open plan kitchen. Here, high end appliances hint at your hosts' penchant for dining perfection, and spotlights glint in the high-shine chrome. Grab a plate and take a seat at the impressive glass dining table, rounded by tan leather chairs. In the sitting room, admire the contemporary artwork lining the walls, recline on the bespoke upholstery, specially designed by a famous architect, or warm yourselves before the remote controlled fireplace.
Up in the double bedroom, enjoy the clean lines and ambient lighting as you sample the crisp, linen sheets, or relax in the upscale wet room ensuite. In the master bedroom, a super king sized bed invites repose in the light of a Georgian sash window, and elegant, conceptual artwork adds a floral flourish to the neutral walls. Touch base with the star of the show in the mirrored wardrobes, then bathe in the master ensuite, accompanied by an elegant rose tree and beige stone work. Head back out, and a brisk walk and an exclusive key grant you entrance to the Park Crescent’s gardens, a private paradise on the southern brink of Regent’s Park.
If the stones of Marylebone could talk, they’d tell an historical tale of affluence. Simply wander the film set streets and admire the architecture, popping into the odd artisan coffee shop and delicatessen along the way. Swan through the grand streets into Regent’s Park or find your way to upmarket Marylebone High Street. Oxford Circus meanwhile is just ten minutes’ walk away.
