Popping with colour, and boasting some of the most fabulous furniture we’re seen in a while, Harley House is a genuinely fun place. A ground floor flat with the space and luminosity of a penthouse, the décor here may be knowingly retro, but when it comes to technology, this home is right up to date- from the lighting system to the powerful stereo. So whether you’re listening to The Beatles or Led Zeppelin, Harley House is the place to get your groove on. And with Regent’s Park a couple of minutes away and central London within walking distance, we think you’ll be feeling very groovy indeed.
Your hostess was born in California and came to London to pursue a career as a producer. Now, after years working in the theatre, and on both sides of the camera, she works as a psychotherapist.
Get ready for a style revolution. The main living space is completely open-plan, designed and adapted by your hostess when she first took up residence. Stroll through the vast open rooms and watch acid bright colours pop everywhere against the original parquet floors. Relax on the sofa with a Sunday paper, peruse a book from the library in the Eames chair or bake something delicious in the sleek black kitchen. The uber-hip dining table seats eight, and you’ll find that the space is wonderfully contemporary and uncluttered.
The master bedroom has a king sized bed, and a huge ensuite reminiscent of a five star hotel. John Lennon presides over the first of three more double bedrooms, and next door there’s an ensuite with limestone tiles and a free-standing bath. The third room is glamly clad in princess-pink, with a rosy ensuite and artwork celebrating Marilyn Monroe. And there’s one more, with an ensuite splashed with lime green, and a collection of Hendrix-esque electric guitars.
Grab your roller skates and join the kids in Regent’s Park, just over the road, or head to Marylebone High Street for some of London’s nicest shops and cafes. Then, it’s on to Soho and Carnaby Street, or perhaps Covent Garden. Much of central London is within walking distance, or the tube from Regent’s Park to Piccadilly Circus takes a swift four minutes.
This home is amazingly located, right on the Marylebone Road. The apartment is set back from the road beyond a forecourt. When windows are open in the front rooms there is a little noise but the bedrooms in the back remain quiet even when windows are open.
Access to both the gated forecourt and the building itself is only by the 24/7 porters. Your hosts access the building in the same way, but this may not be to everyone's taste.
Since the onefinestay photoshoot, the bed in the fourth bedroom is now replaced with a double bed. We will be taking new photographs soon.
This home doesn't have air conditioning. Between June and September, we'll place fans in each bedroom. Please let us know if you'd like fans outside the summer period.
There is a dog that lives in the home. While it won't be present during your stay, this home may not be suitable for those with allergies.
