Marylebone has a rich London history, with writers such as Wilkie Collins, T.S.Eliot and Charles Dickens calling it home. The area has one of the few high streets in London that still successfully combines a traditional village atmosphere with designer boutiques, including The Conran Shop and Cologne & Cotton, as well as famous eateries like The Providores and The Orrery. University College London, the Royal Academy of Music and The Wallace Collection are on the doorstep.

The interior design showcases the highest technical specifications coupled with the finest examples of progressive interiors from world-renowned designer Rabih Hage. The Chilterns also offers art lovers something extra – a collection of iconic David Bailey photographs.

The development is a partnership between Frogmore, Galliard Homes and O’Shea. Paul White, chairman and CEO of Frogmore, said: “In trying to illustrate something as unique as The Chilterns and the area of Marylebone, we felt it only fitting to use a photographer who himself is unique. David Bailey is one of the world’s most iconic and original photographers who has spent a lifetime creating images that, like The Chilterns, can only be described as one of one.

“We asked Bailey to capture the Marylebone area in the form of 44 specially commissioned limited edition prints which he developed into a wonderful book. With our warmest compliments, we are giving each owner of an apartment at The Chilterns a framed original David Bailey print from the series he created for us, together with the book.”

Apartments are priced from £3m and are available immediately through Galliard Homes. The development has set a new record price per square foot for Marylebone, at £3,500.
