Berkeley Group have luxury property developments across the country, from fantastic family homes to contemporary city centre apartments, all designed to enhance the lifestyle of the residents. This month, we've focused in on one of our property developments in central London - West End Gate - with its range of elegant Manhattan and 1 bedroom apartments through to the more spacious 3 and 4 bedroom apartments which perfectly complement life in the capital.
You can find West End Gate nestled between Marylebone and Little Venice, just to the north of Paddington station over the Paddington Basin giving you easy access to all the practical amenities it provides. The development sits on Edgware Road just minutes away from Edgware Road station and a short walk from both Hyde Park and The Regent's Park, putting it squarely at the centre of where you'd probably want to be for living in central London.
The impressive pillar which signposts West End Gate within Marylebone is Westmark - a vertical architectural interpretation of the classic London mansion block teased to new heights of sophistication which is the most recent phase of the development to release. The overarching concept of West End Gate is to establish residences that boast seemingly effortless elegance and a new standard for luxury living within the capital.
By residing between the tranquil waterways of Little Venice and the eye-catching mansions found in Marylebone, West End Gate benefits from being immersed in a timeless charm which accentuates the architecture of Westmark which is sympathetic to the surrounding aesthetics. You'll find everything you need to live the London lifestyle to its fullest right outside your front door - so why would you want to live anywhere else?
Every element of each apartment has been carefully considered in its design and finishes to create a refined environment that any resident would be excited to return home to. But with balconies sporting views out over London, plush furnishings and all the mod cons you could want, you might prefer to lounge about on your days off and enjoy all the comforts these luxury apartments have offer.
While there's plenty on offer nearby to Marylebone, we've taken care of all the little things you might need in order to live life exactly how you want. The on-site concierge is on hand to help you out with any issues you may have, or assist you with booking the private fine dining suite or luxury cinema if you're planning on entertaining guests. West End Gate also cater to those looking to keep fit, with a well-appointed gym studio and a wellness suite complete with pool and sauna for when you're looking to unwind - all without stepping foot outside the building.
West End Gate's name is somewhat literally, as it sits on the border of London's West End and all the metropolitan activities you can probably think of to do in central London just a few tube stops away. There are delightful bars to uncover in the neighbouring areas of Soho and Covent Garden, all the high street and boutique retailers you could want on Oxford Street and Bond Street, as well as a plethora of unique, enticing restaurants and eateries to choose from.
If you're looking for an evening's entertainment then you won't need to look far, as the cultural cornucopia of London is mostly concentrated in the areas close to West End Gate. The West End of London is synonymous with the UK's bright, vibrant theatre scene - sometimes referred to as "Theatreland" - where you can catch everything from classic performances starring well-known performers to more obscure, thought-provoking pieces. Alternatively, some of the city's best music venues are dotted around the districts for when your favourite artists are touring.
For calmer or more outdoor activities, both Hyde Park and Regent's Park are close at hand for getting your fill of green spaces, quaint lakeside wanders, or fresh running routes if you fancy being more active. On rainy days, you can still escape the bustle of the city and find some peace of mind in one of the many art galleries and museums, such as the National Gallery, V&A, and Saatchi Gallery, where you can go on a cultural journey to discover iconic and spellbinding artworks and artifacts from history.
Living in London can be an immensely rewarding experience for those who want to make the most of everything the city has to offer. For those who want to be at the centre of it all, with some of London's best bits right around the corner, take a look at what West End Gate or our other property Developments in London would have in store for you.
