Nestled between the City of Westminster and the London Borough of Camden, Regent's Park is one of the capital's eight Royal Parks and a popular relaxation spot for nearby residents. Its surrounding area boasts an array of housing options, ranging from grand properties to elegant stucco terraces designed by the late, great John Nash, which are always in high demand.
Formerly known as Marylebone Park due to its close proximity to the affluent inner-city area, the green space was first used as a hunting ground by the Dukes of Portland and remained a royal chase until 1646. The park went on to become the home of several organisations during the 1700s, listing the Zoological Society and the Royal Botanic Society as some of its most prestigious residents. It wasn't until 1835 that members of the general public were allowed to explore the park and enjoy the work of Nash, who is responsible for creating most of the architecture that stands today.
After the Lambeth-born architect had laid down what still serves as the backbone of the park's structure, the 1930s saw further development for the area. This included the construction of Queen Mary's Gardens and the demolition of six out of the eight villas built by Nash.
Speed up to modern day and Regent's Park offers everything a local resident could want out of their favourite place for unwinding. Inside the park's 487 acres is an impressive list of facilities and amenities, creating room for gardens, sports pitches, children's playgrounds and even a boating area at its very own lake. It's here where London residents can catch nature in action courtesy of the nearby heronry and waterfowl that flock to the area.
Regent's Park is also known for its spacious public gardens, with an ever-expanding collection of flowers and specimen plants on show at the formal Italian Gardens, the adjacent English Gardens and the gardens of St John's Lodge. Further south of the park is the Inner Circle, which contains the beautiful Queen Mary's Gardens. This world-famous attraction was named after the wife of King George V and is known for having London's largest collection of roses.
Some of the park's other significant landmarks include the Winfield House, the official residence of the US Ambassador of the UK, which can be found in the private grounds in the western area. Visible from many sides of the park, passers-by are however free to roam through the domed London Central Mosque, a popular attraction as well as a place of worship for nearby residents.
Just outside the Inner Circle's southern area are a number of institutions for higher education, including Regent's College - known as only the second private university in Britain - as well as the London Business School (LBS), European Business School London, Webster Graduate School and British American College London (BACL).
The park itself is encased by an Outer Circle, a popular spot for cyclists and runners which also provides a highly diverse range of housing options thanks to it rounding off all four corners of the area. Property on the outer lining is always in high demand, although there are more available houses on the park's neighbouring streets, including Prince Albert Road, Albany Street and Marylebone Road.
This is in addition to the options available in the park's terraces, including York Terrace, Gloucester Gate, Hanover Terrace, and Cumberland Terrace among others.
Peaceful, full of splendour and quintessentially British, it's little wonder why properties near the Regent's Park area don't stay on the market for long.
Regent's Park (officially The Regent's Park) is one of the Royal Parks of London. It is in the northern part of central London partly in the City of Westminster and partly in the London Borough of Camden.

Nine villas were built in the park. There follows a list of their names as shown on Christopher and John Greenwood's map of London (second edition, 1830), with details of their subsequent fates:
Marquis of Hertford's Villa: later known as St Dunstans; rebuilt as Winfield House in the 1930s and now the American Ambassador's residence.
Grove House: still a private residence but previously owned by Robert Holmes a Court, the Australian businessman. His estate sold the property after he died from a heart attack in the early 1990's. Grove House is said to have one of the largest gardens in central London after Buckingham Palace. The garden runs along the edge of Regent's Canal.
Hanover Lodge: as of 2005 under restoration for renewed use as a private residence. Recently (2007) the subject of a Court Case (won by Westminster City Council against the architect, Quinlan Terry, and contractor, Walter Terry & Co) that ruled that two Grade II listed buildings had been illegally demolished while the property was leased to Conservative peer, Lord Bagri. While the main residence still exists, the neo-classical roadside lodges no longer stand.
Albany Cottage: demolished. Site now occupied by London Central Mosque.
Holford House (not shown on Greenwood's map; but see Stanford's map of 1862): built in 1832 north of Hertford House, and the largest of the villas at that time. From 1856 it was occupied by Regent's Park College (which subsequently moved to Oxford in 1927). In 1944 Holford House was destroyed to a great extent when a bomb was dropped on it during World War II, and it was demolished in 1948.
St. John's Lodge: still a private residence, but part of its garden is now a public garden. This is an arrangement with the Lodge's owners who have allowed the main portion of their garden to be enjoyed by the public.
The Holme: still a private residence. The garden is open several days a year via the National Gardens Scheme.
South Villa: Site of George Bishop's Observatory (IAU code 969), erected in 1836 near the house and equipped with a 7-inch Dolland refractor. Hind, Vogel, Marth, Talmage, Pogson, and Dawes observed there. The observatory closed when Bishop died in 1861, and the instruments and dome were moved to Meadowbank, Twickenham in 1863. Twickenham Observatory closed in 1877 and the instruments were given to the Royal Observatory of Naples (Osservatorio Astronomico di Capodimonte). The South Villa is now replaced by Regent's College, now one of the two largest groups of buildings in the park alongside London Zoo.
Sir H. Taylor's Villa: demolished; site now part of the open parkland.
A residential history of St. John's Lodge, The Holme and Hanover Lodge is to be published by the owners in 2007 along with some aspects of the litigation history surrounding these properties, including the IRA bombing of the nearby bandstand on Holme Green.
Between 1988 and 2004 six new villas were built by the Crown Estate at the north western edge of the park, between the Outer Circle and the Regent's Canal. They were designed by Quinlan Terry in a variety of traditional styles and named accordingly: the Corinthian, Gothick, Ionic, Regency, Tuscan and Veneto villas.

Marylebone High Street is an ideal place for a leisurely stroll, especially if you weave your way into St Christopher's Place. Away from the busy, traffic-laden streets, this paved area is a hamlet of fashion shops and trendy eateries. And, at the slightest glimpse of summer, tables and chairs spill out on to the pavements for al fresco dining.

Within its 166 hectares (410 acres) Regent's Park is amazingly diverse in terms of what it has to offer visitors. Ranging from wide-open playing fields and wildflower grassland to more secluded woodland, wetland and reedbeds. One very important element of the management of the Park is a focus on the conservation and enhancement of biodiversity. Over the past twenty years, the management of the Park has concentrated on meeting both the needs of the public and those of its wildlife. As a result, the Park is an important site for wildlife, which also benefits from the stunning collections such as the Queen Mary Gardens and the Rose Gardens. The Park is particularly popular amongst bird watchers as one of the richest sites in London.
