Welcome to Luxury Topping’s Property of the Month as judges for the best property awards we get to see stunning new homes across London.
To kick the series off, we head to the fashionable Marylebone with £6.5 million in our pocket to purchase the ultimate London pad around the corner from our favourite restaurant. Three properties were developed out of the former workshop of the Bramah Locksmiths and just one remains for sale. Bramah are one of the oldest locksmiths, founded in 1784 by Joseph Bramah the inventor of the Bramah Precision lock which was manufactured at Oldbury Place. A click on Google will give you the history to entertain many dinner parties.
For a development in this location with such an illustrious history you need the best architects and Stiff + Trevillion who are renowned for their innovate restaurant designs have created houses with an urban edge, cool, slick and impressive New York loft-style homes. Details such as the blackened steel stairs with inlaid oak treads, rustic wood and concert effect. Crittall Windows have been re-purposed to make full use of the high ceilings. Library frameless glass balustrades leading to the living area and a light well with a living wall stretches from the roof to the basement.
Other significant features of the property include; Bulthaup kitchens with Gaggenau appliances, four beautifully light and airy bedrooms, two with en-suites split across 5 floors. The piece de la resistance, a subterranean floor with barrel vaulted ceiling stretching out underneath the Marylebone cobbles, could house a yoga studio, cinema or games room or even the wine cellar of your dreams.
An intelligent home management system has been used throughout the home; it is possible to view your house from a sunbed in the French Riviera or a chair in your local, the Chiltern Firehouse.
Finally the property gurus say, the impact of Crossrail will make Marylebone even more desirable. Get your cheque book out now before we do.
