Our home in London 1 August 2001 - 2004

43, Marathon House
- on the first (not ground) floor -
200 Marylebone Road - London

The Landmark Hotel on Marylebone Road is the brick structure on the left (with the clock tower and flags).
Our new home is the glass and metal building in the background just beyond the Landmark Hotel.

Here's a closer view of our building.
Our flat is in the center of the shorter structure to the left - we won't see or hear the street traffic.

This is the Westminster City Council Building across
the street from the flat...our local governing body.

   The current tenant won't be moving out until the end of July, but we wanted to take some pictures...more pictures after we move in!
   The flat comes furnished; however, some of the items in the pictures you see below belong to the current tenant.

Here's a partial view of the right side of the entry/hallway; the guest bath is on the right; the master bed on the left.

Past the Master Bedroom, turning from the left, there is a large closet, the guest bedroom, then the reception/dining area, the kitchen, and the front door.

This is our patio; the only doors out onto it are from the reception area (far left), the guest bedroom (left), and the master bedroom (where Tim is standing to take the picture).  Our estate agent says there aren't restrictions as to what we can put out there...we'll see...but it's great anyway!
