Buying property in Marylebone
Marylebone’s name originates from a church which was originally dedicated to St Mary and was built on the bank of a small stream. Therefore, the area came to be known as St Mary at the Bourne which was corrupted over time to become known as Mary-la-bonne as French was the language of the aristocracy of the time. The area then eventually became commonly known as Marylebone, a name which it has retained to this day.

About property in Marylebone
We have a great selection of flats for sale in Marylebone. Located very near the centre of the West End, Marylebone is a surprisingly calm urban village, filled with period homes and Victorian mansion flats.
Straddling the NW1, W1 and W2 postcodes, Marylebone has a somewhat ‘village’ feel yet it is minutes from the centre of the bustling West End. It is perfectly placed to offer immediate access to west London, the M4 corridor and Heathrow Airport.
So named after a church dedicated to St. Mary built on the banks of a small stream (long ago covered over) called the Tybourne, and not, as many people would believe, after Marie la Bonne (French for ‘Mary the Good’), Marylebone is home to some of the most prestigious residential properties in the UK, including the magnificent John Nash-designed terraced housing in Regent’s Park.
Marylebone isn’t home to many of the steel and glass behemoths being built further into the West End and The City, however the modernity of the commercial office space in the area lies behind some of the most elegant facades in London around Portland Place, Wimpole Street, Welbeck Street, Queen Anne Street and Devonshire Street, amongst many others.
The area is famous both for its eclectic range of boutique shops around the Marylebone High Street area as well as its proliferation of private medical and dental practices centred around Harley Street.
