About Portman Estate

The Portman Estate is a property estate in Marylebone, Central London. It lies between Oxford Street and Edgware Road, and includes Portman Square, Manchester Square, and some parts of Baker Street and Gloucester Place. The estate was constructed between 1764 and 1810, firstly by Henry William Portman, then by his son Edward Berkeley Portman, whose son Edward would become the first of the Viscounts Portman. The Estate did not carry out the building work itself - it dictated street plans, and then leased the land to speculators and private builders to carry out the actual construction, and the architects such as James Thompson Parkinson were instructed by the Estate.
