The Chilterns offers London living at its finest, and features a unique façade which pays homage to The Beatles ‘Apple Boutique’, which was located just yards from the development. The a variety of textures and colours is designed to emulate a series of records on a shelf, whilst the main bays are clad in reconstituted stone, giving clean and sharp form to the main structure of the building. Purchasers can choose from a six interior design schemes, Timeless, The Collector, The Voyager, The Minimalist, Neo-heritage and Connoisseur, which have been exclusively designed by award-winning Rabih Hage to suit a variety of discerning tastes and styles.
Rabih Hage, interior designer for the scheme, commented: “London is one of the world’s rare safe havens; from the investment point of view as well as in the enviable lifestyle that this city offers. There are very few places that equal this beautiful city - in quality of life, as well as for business and cultural opportunities. Marylebone, and The Chilterns specifically, are at the true heart of this idyllic city, a few minutes’ walk from Bond Street and Mayfair or from Regent’s Park and Oxford Street. The Chilterns offers an exceptional location in a district of London, so far not totally discovered for its real value of living - a village feel in an international city! I view the designs of The Chilterns as secluded and open at the same time, mirroring the diversity of London in its cluster of sophisticated urban villages such as Marylebone.”
Featuring a 24-hour concierge service, gym, sauna and spa, private cinema room, and secure parking, the opportunity to own a basement wine cellar, and outside entertainment space to each apartment - The Chilterns specification is second to none. Formally home to T.S.Eliot and Charles Dickens, and now home to Sir Paul McCartney and the famous Abbey Road Studios, Marylebone has one of the few high streets in London that still successfully combines a traditional village atmosphere with designer boutiques, including The Conran Shop and Cologne & Cotton, as well as famous eateries like The Providores and The Orrery. Also a desirable location for education and culture, University College London, the Royal Academy of Music and The Wallace Collection are on the doorstep. Purchasers from overseas will delight at the excellent transport connections to Oxford Street Mayfair and Knightsbridge, where some of the world’s best designer department stores and shops can be discovered, and access into the City from Baker Street tube station provides links on the Jubilee line. The Chilterns central location means residents are connected to, and can enjoy, the very finest London has to offer.
