West and northwest London apartments benefit from a wonderful balance of green space and commerce. These properties have access to some of London’s biggest parks and best shopping. Located in the neighborhood of Marylebone, Baker Street is itself a busy and predominantly commercial road stemming down from the southwest corner of Regent’s Park and turning into Portman Square then Orchard Street, where it meets with the famous shopping district of Oxford Street. Not far from the highly touristed Madame Tussaud’s, it’s also the address of one of the most famous (and fictional) houses in London—that of none other than detective Sherlock Holmes (a museum in his honor is located at 221b Baker Street).
Marylebone in general is an active area of great shops, restaurants, and nightlife, an affluent area that enjoys upmarket commerce along with the tranquil escape of Regent’s Park. Covering over 400 acres, Regent’s Park is a green oasis outside the hubbub, with a renowned rose garden, zoo, open-air theatre, cafés, and sports facilities, contributing to the area’s suitability for both the cosmopolitan and the outdoorsy, families and singles.
Baker Street apartments have closest access to Baker Street tube station, which services five different Underground lines: the Bakerloo, Circle, Jubilee, Hammersmith & City, and Metropolitan. Also within walking distance of the street’s north end is Marylebone station, servicing the Bakerloo line as well as Network Rail trains. Otherwise, near the southern end of the street (where it’s technically called Orchard, not Baker) are Marble Arch and Bond Street tube stations on the Central Line (Bond Street also services the Jubilee). And as a rail alternative, just over a dozen bus routes run from Baker Street and Marylebone, and there are two Baker Street stations for hiring Barclays bikes, with even more in the streets just off of it.
Locating the best London apartments for rent during your moving time frame requires a good amount of sleuthing to crack the market’s code. Sherlock himself would be clueless as to why lettings agencies don’t share their listings for Baker Street apartments with each other. This isn’t only the case in Marylebone; it’s everywhere in the city—the London rentals market does not use MLS! Our dear Watson, that stuff should be elementary in this industry…
We don’t want to leave you pounding the pavement for days if not weeks to compensate for dastardly deeds in the London rentals market. Lettings agencies work harder to appease landlords because that’s who pays them, not to mention they often only have a few places to show you any given day and might schedule inconvenient appointments. You might also reconsider a property you saw on your first day out only to find that it’s not on the market anymore because the market moves so swiftly. We keep you ahead of the game, therefore, by scheduling all your property viewings into only one day—as many as 25 Baker Street apartments, as a matter of fact—and chauffeuring you to each one so that the process couldn’t be quicker or more convenient. And given the comprehensive volume of properties involved, you can draw a well-informed conclusion, not a hasty one.
But we don’t stop at finding your perfect home—we guide you through every step of moving to London until you’re peacefully settled in and The Case of the Missing Perfect Flat is officially closed.
