The majority of the iconic terraces around Regent’s Park were designed in the early 1800’s by architect John Nash at the express request of the Prince Regent, later George VI.

Nash, famed for the fantastical domes of the Brighton Pavilion, was commissioned to develop a series colonnades epitomizing the elegance of the period and leaving Marylebone with a lasting legacy of neo-classically inspired architecture.Many apartments currently on the market have retained the period character of the regency era.
