Portman, Portland, Bentinck… Many of the area’s streets are named after various 18th century noble landowners, including Robert Harley who laid out Cavendish Square in 1717. Its row of Palladian Houses was succeeded by developments from the Adam Brothers and Nash, whose Chandos House is beautifully proportioned.
Churches are also of note, with All Souls, Langham Place and St Mary’s, Marylebone. Rebuilt in 1817as the fourth church on this site, the latter is famous as the wedding venue of the Brownings.
Two centuries separate Georgian elegance and the modern functionalism of the 1931 BBC building, yet both represent the evolving nature of British building, with its firm traditions in the use of stone, brick and timber. Wooden floors remain as popular as ever. In properties old and new: in hotels, gyms, offices, shops, cafes or domestic settings, they offer a beauty matched by durability. Easy to maintain and keep clean, no floor surface is more practical.
Time does take its toll in wear, a tired look, scratches and more serious damage. Yet the remedy is simple: wood floor repair and restoration from a professional floor sanding company.
After repairs to the timber, sanding floorboards strips away the old layers of sealant back to smooth, bare wood. The floor is then ready for a new finish: lacquer for hard wear; oil or wax to give a natural look to your floor.

Useful facts about Marylebone:
Marylebone is in an area of London that can be roughly defined as bounded by Oxford Street to the south, Marylebone Road to the north, Edgware Road to the west and Great Portland Street to the east. A broader definition designates the historic area as Marylebone Village and encompasses neighbouring Regent's Park, Baker Street and the area immediately north of Marylebone Road, containing Marylebone Station, the original site of the Marylebone Cricket Club at Dorset Square, and the neighbourhood known as Lisson Grove to the border with St John's Wood.
Marylebone gets its name from a church dedicated to St Mary, represented now by St Marylebone Parish Church (1817); the original church was built on the bank of a small stream or "bourne", called the Tybourne or Tyburn, that rose further north in what is now Swiss Cottage, eventually running along what is now Marylebone Lane which preserves its curve within the grid pattern. The church and the surrounding area later became known as St Mary at the Bourne which, over time, became shortened to its present form, Marylebone.
A large part of the area directly to the west was constructed by the Portman family and is known as the Portman Estate. Both estates have aristocratic antecedents and are still run by members of the aforementioned families. The Howard de Walden Estate owns, leases and manages the majority of the 92 acres (370,000 m2) of real estate in Marylebone which comprises the area from Marylebone High Street in the west to Robert Adam’s Portland Place in the east and from Wigmore Street in the south to Marylebone Road in the north.
