As new-build towers start to dominate the London property market, it’s refreshing to see notable heritage homes come onto the market, like this 16th century property in Marylebone
This apartment on Seymour Place is a perfect example of this, situated in a beautiful 16th century Palladian style building that once housed the old Marylebone Court House.
What’s more, before being built as a court house, the site previously housed a church and churchyard for the village. It’s a integrated part of Marylebone history and this quintessentially British heritage in its exteriors has been transported into sheer luxury inside.
Set on the second floor, the apartment is designed across 2,500 sq ft and two levels, comprising of a living room, kitchen, three bedrooms, three bathrooms, a guest W.C., a garage, utility room and store room. And the building itself also benefits from a morning porter, an underground car park and a lift.
The apartment is full of unique design details, including a mezzanine area where the master bedroom and another bedroom are situated as well as a double height ceiling in the living room.
This all makes the apartment feel much bigger and airier than you would expect for such a central location. And, aided by the large living room windows and skylights, the result is also extremely bright.
Another wonderful feature is the unique rounded staircase that leads up to the mezzanine level, which looks as if it came straight out of an elegant Miami mansion.

The apartment also has a private terrace, which lets you look out onto the wonderful surrounds of Marylebone as well as offering a spot for a bit of greenery in the built-up city.
Needless to say, it’s clearly in a highly sought-after location, surrounded by embassies, galleries and near the boutique shops of Mayfair.
The walk to Marylebone and Edgeware Road tube stations is only around five minutes and it’s easy to reach a number of central locations like Hyde Park, Wigmore Hall and Regent’s Park by foot.
Seymour Place is available to rent through Harrods Estates for £1,975 per week
