From the morning caffeine rush through late night shopping, Oxford Street romps and roars with activity. And just a minute away from the melee, you’ll find Newman Street. Calm, cool and whisper-quiet, it couldn’t be more different. A private lift presents itself on arrival, whisking you away to this peaceful penthouse whose furniture is modern, flooring honeyed and heated and huge rooftop garden abundant with flowers. Entertain with a barbecue before chilling in the chic sitting room or nipping off to town. But whether it Oxford Street’s shops or the eats of Charlotte Street, you may find yourself as good as there already.
Your hosts have a second home in France, where they spend as much of their free time as possible. A married couple, their grown-up children have flown the nest. He is a high-flying businessman who just loves the centrality of this London pad.
Whisper it quietly
No matter how hefty your shopping bags, you’ll be at Newman Street in no time at all. Once there, step into your private lift and glide up to this top-floor retreat.

The sofas are squashy and skylit, and you’ve a wide, wall-mounted TV as well as some engaging artwork. Once you’ve whipped up that meal in the well-stocked kitchen, four can eat at the round dining table. The rooftop garden is large enough to contain two more dining tables, as well as a barbecue, benches and plants aplenty. Perfect for those who wish to entertain, or just kick back in the centre of the city.
