Once part of The Bramah Lock Company warehouse, this beautifully renovated mews property in Marylebone combines heritage with high-tech and most certainly ticks the prestigious address box…
Marylebone has become one of the most desirable addresses to live in London, and this project by real estate investor Boultbee LDN is one of their most prestigious residential projects to date.
Oldbury Place is the former site of London’s oldest locksmiths, The Bramah Lock Company. Boultbee LDN has converted the former Victorian workshop into three luxury tech-enabled townhouses in a pretty mews that’s just a stone’s throw from Marylebone Village, and there’s just one left; Number 30 Oldbury Place.
The Bramah Lock Company was founded in 1784 by Joseph Bramah the inventor and locksmith. The company famously challenged anyone who could break their Bramah Precision lock with a reward of 200 guineas, a prize which stood for over 67 years until, at the Great Exhibition of 1851, the American locksmith Alfred Hobbs succeeded in picking the lock, but it took him 50 hours.
‘The properties are unique, and the period element of the property means that you are buying a slice of history,’ says Managing Director Simon Hosking. ‘We went six and a half metres down underground to create subterranean levels. The amount of light that pours into the ground and lower ground floor levels is quite unique and something that I’ve not really seen anywhere else.’
Number 30 Oldbury Place has been designed by leading designers Stiff & Trevillion, who have retained the industrial charm and character features of the property’s industrious past while incorporating modern and tranquil high-tech interiors. It has three bedrooms, a cinema room, gym, and basement and lower ground floors to maximise your square footage.
‘Oldbury Place as a location is a real gem – a charming cobbled mews quietly tucked away behind the bustling Marylebone High Street. The mews is discreet with few taxi drivers even aware of its existence,’ says Claire Reynolds, Director of Marylebone Savills. ‘The buildings are very rare in Marylebone and offer a unique style of living to the typical Georgian townhouses and smaller mews houses.’
Oldbury Place is on the market for a guide price of £6,495,000 with Savills
