Marylebone- Property Refurbishment

Client Background

A Jersey trust company acquired a beautiful mews property in Marylebone, with the intent of preparing it as a London base for their beneficiary. This charming first-floor flat features two double bedrooms and a small outdoor space.


The primary objective was to modernise the property’s services, decorations, and furnishings without compromising its traditional charm. Unexpectedly, part of the flooring was discovered to be concrete, making the replacement of pipework more complex and laborious than initially anticipated. Additionally, the property’s small communal entrance and stairwell posed logistical challenges for manoeuvring equipment and goods.
