Regent's Park as a housing estate

LEVERTON, Thomas & CHAWNER, Thomas.

Plan of an Estate Belonging to the Crown, Called Marybone Park Farm, upon A Design for letting it out on Building Leases.
London: Luke Hansard & Sons for the House of Commons, 1812. Original colour. Sheet 420 x 550mm.

Trimmed close to printed border top and bottom, losing publication details.

A plan of one of the three proposals for the development of the land owned by the Crown in Marylebone, submitted by Thomas Leverton (1743-1824), the architect to the Office of His Majesty's Woods, Forests, and Land Revenue, and his assistant. Instead of an urban park they suggest a development of terraces and villas of various sizes, thus maximising the revenue from the project.
